Admissions

We are delighted you have expressed interest in our program! We accept those qualified students, regardless of race, color, religion, or national origin, who, in the opinion of the school, will have a successful experience in our program and will enhance the classes for which they are applicants. We seek to create classroom communities that are balanced by gender and age. Also taken into consideration is the family's commitment to the Montessori philosophy. Members of Galilee Church and siblings of currently enrolled students are given preference for admission. The application process begins by scheduling a guided tour of the classrooms. We encourage early applications, as there are a limited number of spaces in the program. 


Enrollment for the upcoming school year begins in mid-January. Applications for enrollment mid-school year (January) are considered on a case-by-case basis and if space allows. When possible, families are notified of acceptance into the program within six weeks of submitting an application.  If we are unable to notify families within six weeks, families will be notified immediately following the Returning Student Re-Enrollment Period.


The following steps are required for the application process:

  • Contact the school office to schedule a tour. We ask that children do not attend the initial visit to our facility. The tour will take prospective parents through all five  classrooms to provide them with a glimpse of our everyday Montessori life and learning. 
  • Submit an application along with a non-refundable $25.00 application fee.  Both the Application and an online payment option are available below.
  • Following review of the application, the school office will contact you to schedule a time to meet with you and your child. During this time, the Director will meet with prospective parents, while a teacher meets with your child to determine if Montessori will be a good fit for your child. 
  • If possible, families will be notified of acceptance into the program within six weeks of submitting an application. In some cases, families may not be notified until after the Returning Student Re-Enrollment Period.  Following acceptance, families will receive further information on the enrollment process.
