Application

Please feel free to contact us to inquire about our programs and any other details about our school. We are always happy to speak to interested parents and we'd also be happy to send you an information packet. We ask that you read the packet (or website) very closely and be particularly mindful of our requirements for a commitment to the full Montessori experience (through Kindergarten) and the full-day (until 2:45 pm) requirement for children over 4.5 years old. If you are comfortable with the philosophy and policies, we encourage you to submit an application.

The Application Process for the 2018-2019 School Year

Please note that we are currently full for the 2017-2018 school year. All parents are welcome to submit an application, but any application will be placed on our waitlist and you will be contacted for a tour and parent interview if a space opens up. In October, when we begin our tours for the 2018-2019 school year, those who have submitted applications after the Jan. 31, 2017 deadline will be invited in for a tour. You are also welcome to sign up for our group tour in May 2017 or our Fall group tours.

  1. Attend an Open House or group tour. (Please see below for times and RSVP to admissions@centennialmontessori.org. Please note that these events are for adults only.)
  2. Submit an application by January 25, 2018. (Please note that applications submitted after January 25th will be accepted and placed on our waitlist. Tours and interviews will be granted only if space is available.)
  3. Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule a parent visit and discussion to complete the application process.
  4. We receive our re-enrollments and sibling enrollments in the beginning of February. At this point we will know how many spaces we have in the Elementary, Children's House and the Young Children's Community and we may invite some families back for an interview and/or child visit.
  5. Decisions are mailed March 15th and accepted children who are eligible (based on age and toilet independence) are welcome to attend our summer program in the summer of 2018.
