Parent Resources for Future Students

Admission Procedure

Our school has a non-discriminatory admissions policy of enrollment for children starting at two years to 5th grade.

  1. Schedule a tour of  the school and observe your child's potential classroom.

  2. Complete an Application for Admission Form and submit non-refundable Registration Fee.

  3. Complete Student Enrollment forms and MCA contract. Return to administration with necessary fees prior to actual school attendance.

  4. Once enrolled, attend Parent Orientation Meeting.  *Contact office for meeting date.

In January prior to the eligible school year, MCA has preferential status for incumbent students and siblings of incumbent students. A letter of Intent to Return Form is sent home in backpacks and posted. Returning students must return the Intent Form and siblings must return the Intent Form and an Application for Admission Form.

Preferential status for new students who are siblings exists until the specified date on the Intent to Return letter. After that date, incumbent students and all siblings of incumbent students lose their preferential enrollment status for all programs during the entire school year. This policy allows for the school to plan enrollment and allows new families to plan for admission to the school. After the date specified on the Intent to Return letter, enrollment will be first-come, first-serve basis in accordance with the date on the Application for Admission Form except in the case of alumni or Montessori transfer students.

Enrollment

Enrollment is very limited and the office should be contacted for availability.

Please note, the school has had a waiting list since July 2014. Spaces for the 2015-16 school year are available if a child leaves MCA due to a parent relocation or such instances. If you would like to register your child for 2015-16 please call the office to find out the current status of the waiting list. New student registration for the 2015-16 school year starts in February 2015.
