Admissions and Tuition

Enrollment Process

1. Schedule a call and tour

Our enrollment process begins with a phone call with our our Director of Admissions. In our call, we will explain the Montessori philosophy, CRA’s curriculum, and the attributes of CRA that make our program unique. If you feel as though CRA would be a good fit for your family, we will schedule a time for you to visit our school. Observing the classroom and children at work will give you a unique perspective of the Montessori educational process in action.

2. Submit an application

After your call, 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.
