ADMISSION PROCESS   2020-2021 Admissions Open in March

Step 1: Email montessori(at)stpetersaz.com to schedule a school tour. During the COVID-19 move to distance ed, our tours will be conducted via Zoom and virtual tours of the classrooms that we have online. Your understanding is appreciated, as we are doing the best we can to replicate the tour experience remotely. 

Step 2: "Visit" the campus and determine if St. Peter's is a good fit for your family. Note: during the COVID-19 move to distance ed, our tours will be conducted via Zoom and virtual tours of the classrooms.

Step 3: Contact the school office to schedule your student for an interview with a teacher. This step will be postponed until we return. 

Step 4: If your student is believed to be ready to start school and a good match for Montessori, an offer of enrollment will be extended. Enrollment documents will be completed online via Transparent Classroom.

Please note the following:

Enrollment is not guaranteed until an enrollment forms are completed and the $200.00 non-refundable enrollment fee is received by the school. If students are waitlisted due to capacity issues, enrollments will be processed from the waitlist on a first come first serve basis. Siblings of existing students are given preference over new families when waitlists occur.

Children are required to be fully independent with their toileting before starting school. This includes recognizing the feeling of needing to go, and then being able to go on their own without the aid of an adult. If staying for naptime, children should be able to stay dry through a nap as well. We recognize that the occasional accident happens, but if your child is still having an accidents regularly, then we can delay enrollment until potty training is complete.
