Interested in applying to our school?

We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your child! 

When you’ve decided Arbor Montessori is the place for your child and your family, our admissions process is simple. This step-by-step application guide will help you along the way. We’re here to help, don’t hesitate to reach out. Liticia Weissinger, Director of Admissions and Outplacement, can be reached by phone at 404-321-9304 or by email at liticiaw@arbormontessori.org.

01
Contact Our Admissions Office
It’s never too early to begin the application process. Liticia Weissinger, Director of Admissions and Outplacement, can be reached via phone or email liticiaw@arbormontessori.org. Your first conversation will be a chance to let us know how old your child is and what program you are interested in applying for. We will invite you to schedule a visit to the school so that you may tour the campus and see in person what we have to offer.
02
Schedule a Tour
Initial visits are scheduled for weekday mornings. This gives prospective families a chance to see the uninterrupted morning work cycle: a hallmark of Montessori education. Your visit will start with a tour of the school followed by the opportunity to meet with our administrative staff to ask any question you may have. Please note that these initial visits are for adults only. Personalized tours can be scheduled via Calendly, or you are welcome to attend any of our upcoming Information Sessions and Tour Days.
03
Apply Online
Applications are available online. After submission, you can track the status of an application through the full process. Please note: there is a non-refundable application fee of $100 per child. Applications for the 2019-20 school year are available as of October 15, 2018, and must be completed by February 15, 2019.
04
Schedule a Parent Interview and Child Visit
Arbor’s admissions office will contact you to arrange a time for a parent interview and child visit. Children applying to our toddler program will not have a child visit. This is the time where we get to know your family and your child, and when your child is invited to spend time in a Montessori classroom environment. We look forward to getting to know your family better through this process.
05
Join the Community!
We will notify your family of acceptance to Arbor's Montessori program. You will be asked to sign an enrollment contract and submit a payment of $1500 after acceptance of our offer of admission. This first payment will be applied toward your child’s tuition. Then, find out what it means to be a part of our community! Connect with us on social media to find out about events and connect with Arbor families, friends, and alumni.

Schedule a Visit for Your Child

We invite children to spend some time in our classrooms, where they’ll have a chance to meet the teachers and other students, as well as explore the environment. Our teachers will work with your child and learn more about their interests. The amount of time spent in the classroom will vary, depending on your child’s age and comfort level. Schedule a visit now
