The MGA Admissions Process is designed to help families gain a deeper understanding of Montessori education and explore its suitability for the whole family. MGA welcomes all students, regardless of gender, ethnic heritage, religious affiliation, national origin, family structure, or any other characteristic. All children of the world are welcome on our campus. Preference in admissions is given to returning students and their siblings. Once these families have been given a chance to enroll, further applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis. We accept CCDF.
Step 1: The first step in our process is the informational meeting and tour of the school. This enables parents/guardians to discover "the MGA difference." It is important to know our values, philosophy, and practices in educating children and see how they coincide with your values and philosophies. A classroom visit in the appropriate program allows you to further observe program dynamics and activities. Finally, we ask you to provide any information or records to help determine if the student will benefit from attending MGA. Please note, MGA may request records from schools previously attended. To set up your tour, please call for an appointment at 317-782-9990 or e-mail us.
Step 2: We encourage you to discuss as a family whether Montessori and MGA are the right fit for your child. If so, complete the Admission Application and send it to the school with the non-refundable $195.00 application fee.
Step 3: Admission decisions are based on an evaluation of the child's school visit, school transcripts, and parent/guardian interview. Admission decisions are communicated in writing.
Step 4: Along with notice of acceptance, the enrollment contract is presented for signature. Upon receipt of the signed contract, the child is considered enrolled.
Step 5: If a place is not immediately available in the child's program, the child will be placed in our waiting pool. Children are chosen from the waiting pool as spaces become available.
