Thank you for your interest in the St. Croix Montessori School. We look forward to talking with you about the many benefits of a Montessori education for your child. The steps in the admissions process are the following:
STEP ONE: INQUIRY
Complete an inquiry form, providing the school with your information so that we can contact you.
STEP TWO: SCHOOL VISIT AND CLASS OBSERVATION
The best way to learn whether a Montessori education is a good choice for your family is to visit the school and observe a class. Half- hour class observations are scheduled in the mornings, generally from 8:30 am to 10:00 am.
Due to the COVID pandemic, we are not currently able to invite prospective parents in to visit classes.
STEP THREE: COMPLETE APPLICATION AND OBTAIN TEACHER RECOMMENDATION
If, after your visit, you would like to proceed with the application process, you may complete the application and parent questionnaire. Please ask your child’s current teacher (if your child is currently enrolled in a program) to send the recommendation form and a copy of a report card directly to St. Croix Montessori School. You must sign the consent at the bottom of the recommendation form.
STEP FOUR: INTERVIEW WITH PROGRAM GUIDE
After the school receives your application, school records and teacher recommendation, you can schedule an interview with the Program Director. Interviews are scheduled after the end of the school day, between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm and generally require ½ hour.
STEP FIVE: CHILD VISIT
If after the interview, the parent and Program Director agree that a Montessori education is a good match for the family, a time for the child to visit is scheduled.
After the Program Director reviews your application and considers the places available for the next semester or school year, we will communicate with you by phone and in writing.
All forms should be completed and all fees must be paid prior to the first day of class. Students will not be permitted to participate in classroom activities until the forms are completed and the fees are paid.
