Admission Process

Interested parents are invited to attend a Prospective Parent Meeting. These meetings are an excellent source of information and an opportunity to visit the campus and ask questions about the school. Meetings are held regularly. Please contact our Director of Admissions, Sara Lee, to register to attend.

Application Process

In addition to attending Prospective Parent Meeting, parents of children aged 1 years old through kindergarten are invited to attend a Montessori in Your Home class. This is an informative class that will give parents useful skills to not only support their child in the Montessori philosophy at home as well as in the four crucial corner stones of the development of the young child: independence, movement, communication and self-discipline.

Once MVM receives the completed and signed application, along with the $100.00 non-refundable application fee, your child will be placed in our applicant pool.

When openings in enrollment occur, applicants will be asked to:

Young Children's Program (1-5 years)
  • Are invited to attend a family interview with the Director of our Young Children's Program.
Elementary and Adolescent Students
  • Are invited to attend an age appropriate classroom for a full school day. Students bring lunch and participate in all classroom activities for the day.
  • Parents are required to meet with the teachers within the week of the student visit to answer questions or share information about the student’s experience. Parent and teacher meetings usually take an hour.

Acceptance of a child is based on several factors; the most important is the match between the Montessori education and the family’s educational goals for the child. Other considerations include: maintaining a balance of gender and age in each classroom and the family’s commitment to enroll for the full length of the program; Toddler for two years, Children's House for three years, Elementary for six years and Adolescence for two years.

We welcome all children to our school and do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national origin ethnicity or ability.
