Admissions Calendar for the 2018-2019 School Year

 Students are admitted with the expectation that their parents intend to continue enrollment throughout the entirety of the program.

ADMISSION TOUR DATES for the September 2018 through mid-June 2019 school year:

Pre-Primary (toddler) ages 24 months by September 10, 2018 to 36 months on their first day of school:

  • These two tours are the only ones offered for the September 2018 school year Pre-Primary (toddler) program. Both tours are full.  Please consider attending one of our Primary tours looking ahead to the future when your child is age 3.
  • The Application Deadline for Pre-Primary (toddler) children (ages 24-36 months) is December 1, 2017.
  • Our Pre-Primary (toddler) class allows 16 children and fills quickly with siblings. Please consider attending one of our Primary tours looking ahead to the future when your child is age 3 and potty-trained. We have five (5) Primary classrooms vs. the one toddler classroom so it's much easier to enter at the Primary level.

    All  Admission Tours begin in the lobby at 9:00am and end at 10:30am and are for adults only.  At the tour, you will receive an Admission Tour Packet which contains helpful information about Montessori education and our school in particular, as well as an Application for Admission.

    The Admission Tour starts with a PowerPoint presentation by the Academic Head of School, followed by a walk through the school with the Director of Admission, an opportunity to sit in a classroom and quietly observe, and a follow-up time for questions back in the Science Lab. Parent Observation Visits in the classroom are required because at MSM we believe the best way for you to select a school is to see it firsthand.

    Please contact the Director of Admission, Leslie Montague, at lmontague@mcleanmontessori.org to RSVP for a tour.

    We look forward to sharing our school with you!
