Additional Forms (Elementary, Junior High)
Parents of Elementary and Junior High applicants who are not currently enrolled at Oak Hill Montessori will be asked to sign a record release form and deliver it to your child's current school office. This form authorizes your child's present school to send Oak Hill Montessori a copy of school records. Additionally, you will be asked to deliver a confidential student evaluation form to your child's current teacher. Your child's school records and completed student evaluation form must be received by Friday, March 2, 2018 for Elementary and Junior High in order for your child to be included in the first round of admissions decisions.
Attend Admissions Visit Day (Children's House, Elementary)
If your child is not currently enrolled at Oak Hill Montessori and you are applying to Children's House, Elementary and/or Junior High programs, you and your child will be invited to a short visit to our school on Friday, March 23, 2018. During this visit, children will visit the classrooms in small groups with teachers while parents attend a required admissions orientation session. We are requesting applications be received by Friday, March 2, 2018 for Elementary and Children's House.
NOTE: Children who are currently enrolled in the Oak Hill Montessori Community will NOT participate in this visit day. Rather, they will visit the classrooms individually.
Receive Notification of Admissions Decision
Admissions decisions are made by the Head of School and the teaching staff. These decisions are based on many factors: thorough completion of all components of the application process, school transcripts (for elementary and junior high), and the needs of our existing classrooms. In all cases, admissions decisions will be mailed the week of March 26, 2018.
Return Enrollment Contract and Tuition Deposit
If a position is offered to your child, you must return your signed Enrollment Contracts and a tuition deposit to Oak Hill Montessori by April 10, 2018. Upon receipt of your tuition deposit, we will hold a place for your child in our program and you will be contractually obligated for the year’s tuition. The school will forgive tuition after a withdrawal only if we are able to replace the student with an equivalent applicant from our waiting pool.
Oak Hill Montessori Enrollment Waiting Pool
If your child is not offered a position in our program in April, you may wish to be placed in our waiting pool. We occasionally experience withdrawals during the summer and urge parents to remain in this waiting pool. Children in the waiting pool for the current year must reapply the following year. The $100 application fee need not be paid again.
If you have any questions about our admissions process and/or wish to schedule an observation please contact us.
