Enrollment Process

2017-2018 Enrollment

The online application for the 2017-2018 school year will be available on our website the week of December 1st, 2016. The deadline for applications to be included in the enrollment lottery for 2017-2018 is midnight, February 17th, 2017. The lottery will be held on February 21, 2017. Notification of lottery results will be mailed on February 28th. Confirmation of acceptance should be in no longer than March 15th. Failure to confirm by the due date will indicate relinquishment of a child’s seat. Notification of placement on the waitlist will be on March 17th. Please refrain from calling the office to determine placement on the waitlist.

Keep in mind that our enrollment process consists of the following steps:

  • Application
  • Info session/tour
  • Lottery
  • Confirmation
  • Enrollment

Enrollment Lottery
The lottery for all age eligible students who submitted a complete application prior to the application deadline will take place on the lottery date each year at the school and will be open to the public. Students will be selected for any grade that is over enrolled starting with Preschool 3 and proceeding up to 6th grade.

Kindergarten Lottery
Montessori del Mundo will hold 3 Kindergarten lotteries each year, for each of the three subsequent Kindergarten classes. Children can enter the Kindergarten lottery for any given class in any and all of the years that is offered.
Ex: In February 2013 a lottery will be held for Kindergarten 2015-2016, Kindergarten 2014-2015, Kindergarten 2013-2014 in that order. A child who will be eligible for Kindergarten in 2015-2016 can apply to the Kindergarten lottery held in 2/2013, 2/2014, and 2/2015.
Children applying for preschool will be automatically entered in the lottery for their respective Kindergarten year, and children applying for a future Kindergarten year will be automatically entered in their preschool lottery.
Drawings for the preschool and Kindergarten lotteries for any given class of students will be conducted concurrently. As each child is drawn, they will be enrolled in both their preschool class and their subsequent Kindergarten class. It is possible that space might exist in one but not both classes in which case the child will be placed on a waitlist for the over-enrolled class and enrolled in the class with space.
Parents granted enrollment to preschool and future Kindergarten may choose not to enroll their child in the preschool but to retain their spot in the future Kindergarten class.
