Steps to Enrollment at St. Croix Montessori School

I. Inquiry/Visit

Please contact the school to schedule a visit. Parents are strongly encouraged to visit the school without children before applying. Carefully review St. Croix Montessori School's program offerings, mission statement and core values and beliefs. During the visit, parents will observe our classrooms and learn more about our school and the Montessori philosophy.

II. The Application

Complete the application form and send with the $100.00 non-refundable fee to SCMS. Call the school or download an application.  Application for Toddler and Primary  print, complete & fax or mail
                                      Application for Elementary and Adolescent  print, complete & fax or mail

III. Acceptance

Acceptance of a child is based on several factors. The most important is the match of the family's and the school's educational goals for the child.  One of our goals is to maintain gender and age balance within the classrooms.  The first round of acceptances takes place the middle of February. Decisions are sent by mail. Accompanying the acceptance letter is an Enrollment Contract which must be completed and returned to the school with the $500.00 non-refundable tuition deposit  within fourteen days. Depending on availability of space, additional rounds of acceptances will take place the middle of each month. 

IV. Waiting Pool 

If there are no available spaces, applicants will be placed in our waiting pool. You will be notified when a place becomes available.

V. Placement 

Families will be notified of class placement by mail. The balance of age and gender are kept in mind as much as possible when assigning children to classrooms. The Montessori Method gives children the advantage of a mixed age classroom, so younger students are stretched by seeing the work of the older students, while older students grow from a meaningful leadership role in the class.

The mission of St. Croix Montessori School is to provide an ideal learning environment based on Montessori principles that will guide and nurture the full development of the individual.
