Maria Montessori Academy’s 2021-2022 school year Open Enrollment (OE) period began on January 19, 2021. The first lottery draw will be held on February 2, 2021.  We will continue to draw students on an as-needed basis after February 2, 2021.

Current students will not need to re-apply to the school through the open enrollment process but will need to indicate their “Intent to Return” for the 2021-2022 school year.  The “Intent to Return” will open on January 4, 2021, and is due by January 19, 2021.  Returning students have a two-step re-enrollment process.  The 1st step is the” Intent to Return” and the 2nd step is in the spring for Confirmation of Placement, Annual Policies and Procedures.

Once you declare your intent for the 2021-2022 school year, you will also have an opportunity to identify any additional siblings who may want to attend MMA.  Siblings must be at least 5 years old on or before September 1, 2021.  By adding a new sibling it does not guarantee a spot for the 2021-2022 school year.  This student will be entered into the lottery.

Please keep in mind if you previously enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year and your child was not selected through the lottery program, you will need to re-enroll in the database for the 2021-2022 school year. Students not chosen through the lottery program will not be “rolled over” to the next school year.

Enrollment Information

A lottery will be held after each open enrollment period ends.  All children must be at least five years old on or before September 1 for the school year in which they are enrolling.  Families will be notified via email of their child’s acceptance into the school through via email. Families selected will be notified of the next in the registration process and what timeline they will need to follow.

Siblings of current Maria Montessori Academy students will receive enrollment preference. If there are more students wanting to be in the school than there are positions available, a computerized random lottery will be run. Additional lotteries will be held on an as-needed basis.

The school does not discriminate in its admission policies or practices on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, disability, or any other protected classification.
