OVERVIEW

* * * NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2024-25 SCHOOL YEAR * * *

 

Our admissions process is designed for your family to get to know us, and us to get to know you. The first step of the admissions process is to schedule a tour. School tours are available Tuesday - Thursday by appointment.

 

2024-25 School Year Admissions Process

  1. Campus Tour – Prospective students are required to attend the school tour.

  2. Application & Required Supplemental Documents – All required documentations and the application fee must be received prior to trial days being assigned, and/or consideration for the 2024-25 school year.

  3. Trial Days – A 3-Day Trial is required for all prospective students entering grades K-8. Trial days begin in November 2023 and will be assigned to each prospective student by the Director of Admissions.

  4. Admissions Decision – Families will be notified via email of admissions decisions in early February 2024.

  5. Apply for Florida State Funded Scholarship – We encourage families to apply for state funded scholarships through Step Up For Students or AAA Scholarship to help with the cost of tuition.

New Students  (Preschool)

Applicant's requesting admissions to Emerging Minds Montessori Academy for our preschool program (Pre-Primary and Primary) should submit the preschool application, required supporting documents, and application fee. Once received, the applicant’s file will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and families will be notified of Admissions decisions in February.  

New Students Grades (Applicants K-8)
Applicant's requesting admissions to Emerging Minds Montessori Academy for grades K-8 are required to attend a three-day trial visitation in the environment they are seeking a space. During this visitation, the applicant will be observed in the areas of independence, intrinsic motivation, emotional maturity, social interactions, and academic abilities. These areas of development are vital in the range of success a student can achieve in a Montessori environment. Though we don't expect all areas to be ideal, we do look for potential in each area. Having the opportunity to encourage these characteristics over a three-day period can help the classroom Guides to determine if Emerging Minds Montessori Academy is a good fit for the applicant. Our ultimate goal is to follow the needs of every student and unfortunately, we are not always the best fit. It is therefore a process we take very seriously.

 

Trials take place between November and February and will be scheduled once the applicant’s trial application, required supporting documents, and application fee is received. Once the trial is complete, the applicant’s file will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and families will be notified of Admissions decisions in February. 

 

Emerging Minds Montessori Academy fully embraces diversity.  We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, national origin, religious beliefs, age, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation.
