Admissions

Admissions Process for children ages 18 months to 6 years

We appreciate that you are considering Austin Montessori School for your child and your family.  Choosing a school that complements and supports your family’s values plays an integral part in your child’s development as a citizen of the world.

The admissions process at Austin Montessori School is designed to provide you with information about our school.  The School Showings and Prospective Parent Presentations outlined below are filled with valuable information regarding both Montessori philosophy and pedagogy, as well as early childhood development.

1) Attend a School Showing:  Attend a School Showing at either the north or south campus.  Showings offer an overview of Montessori history, philosophy, and curriculum in the classroom setting.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn about Montessori education and Austin Montessori School.  Showings are held from September through May.  School Showings are for adults only, but infants in arms are welcome to attend.  Register using the links below.

2) Schedule a Classroom Observation:  Once you have attended a School Showing, we invite you to schedule a classroom observation for either the north or south campus. Observations offer a window into the daily life of a classroom designed specifically to meet the needs of the young child.  Observations are for adults only.  Please call 512-892-0253 ext. 20 or email admissions@austinmontessori.org to schedule an observation.

3) Submit an Application:  Apply on line any time.  A non-refundable $100 fee is required with each application. Once we have received an application, your child will be added to our waiting pool and you will begin receiving information regarding our upcoming admissions events via email. Children are selected from the waiting pool based on a number of factors designed to create balance within the individual classroom communities. Apply Here

4) Attend Prospective Parent Presentations:  Parents interested in learning more about Austin Montessori School and the Montessori approach are encouraged to attend a core series of three Prospective Parent Presentations. Attendance of these presentations is taken into consideration when offering placement. These presentations may be attended in any order and will be repeated during the spring semester. These presentations are for adults only, but infants in arms are welcome to attend. Register using the links below.
