Admissions and Tuition
1. Schedule a call or a tour
When restrictions allow, our enrollment process begins with your visit to our school. Observing the classroom and children at work will give you a unique perspective of the Montessori educational process in action. An after-hours tour may also be an option, so that you can see the facility. If restrictions do not allow visitors to the school, our Director of Admissions will schedule a phone call or virtual meeting with you. In either the tour, call, or meeting, we will explain the Montessori philosophy, CRA’s curriculum, and the attributes of CRA that make our program unique.
2. Submit an application
Once your call or tour is complete, our Director of Admissions will provide you with a link to our online application. You may submit an application and application fee if you choose to move forward with the admissions process. Your application will be reviewed, and our Director of Admissions will contact you regarding enrollment. Space is limited, so we recommend that you complete an application promptly if you have an interest in moving forward.
3. Return enrollment documents and tuition deposit
When the application process is completed and your child is accepted for placement into our program, you will be sent an online enrollment packet. At that time, a tuition deposit must be made and a tuition contract must be signed. Enrollment, depending on the space available, may occur anytime throughout the year.
