*If your child is currently enrolled in another school or early childhood program, please forward their records to our Admissions Office. Elementary students will need to submit records from all previous schools attended.

Student Visit

After your child’s application and fee have been received, the admissions team will contact you to arrange for your child to visit the classroom, meet the teaching team, and spend some time at MSOFX. It is recommended that Elementary children spend 2 consecutive days.

Letter of Notification

After careful consideration of the appropriate placement for each child, the school will notify you of acceptance in writing.

Admission Priorities

The following priorities are observed in determining admissions:

  1. Currently enrolled students (re-enrollment must be received before the deadline)
  2. Siblings of currently enrolled students
  3. Balance of age and gender in the classroom
  4. Transfer students from other Montessori schools
  5. Date of application

If classes are full, prospective students will be put in a waiting pool. Returning students will be given priority over new students in the waiting pool.

MSOFX has a rolling admissions policy, but typically students enroll in September or January. The Head of School makes the final decision regarding student enrollment.
