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 monthly, September through April. Please contact our Director of Admissions, Joyce Draeger, to register to attend.

Application Process

After attending a Prospective Parent Meeting, parents are invited to schedule a time to visit an age appropriate classroom to observe for 30-40 minutes. After the observation, our Director of Admissions meets with parents to answer any questions. Parents will be given an application at this visit.

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:

Children's House (3-5 years) Children
  • Attend a half hour Meet and Greet visit where children will work with the Children's House teachers in small groups with parents located nearby and within eyesight.
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; Primary 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.
