Steps in Admissions Process
**Eligibility: Your child must be three years old by or on November 1, 2020 to be eligible for enrollment for the Summer or Fall of 2023. This is an absolute cut-off of November 1, meaning children whose birthdays are after November 1 will not be considered for enrollment for the following year. All children must be fully toilet-trained. We do not enroll year round nor do we have a waitlist for enrollment. SAMS admissions is a process not a first come first serve basis.
- Complete the New Student Inquiry form.
- Schedule a Tour
Once your inquiry is received, you will be contacted to schedule a tour. During the tour, you'll have an opportunity to meet the Head of School, see the SAMS facilities, and observe the children working in the classroom. Tours offer an opportunity for you to decide if SAMS is right for your child and family before you submit an application.Currently on campus tours are not happening due to the pandemic. We are doing video tours instead.
- Submit an Application
Applications are distributed at the end of the tour or after a zoom interview.
- Child Visit/Videos
The final step in the admissions process is a classroom visit for your child. At the visit he/she will interact with our teachers in a small group setting or one-on-one. This allows us to observe your child in the Montessori environment. This is dependent on COVID. Videos will be requested if the school cannot provide a tour.
- Await the Notification of Decision
These letters will be emailed and given a date to return.
