Pre-School & Spanish Application Forms
Admissions and Re-enrollment
Waterford Montessori Academy shall neither charge tuition nor discriminate in pupil admissions policies or practices on the basis of intellectual or athletic ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, status as a handicapped person, or any other basis that would be illegal if used by a Michigan public school district. Academy enrollment shall be open to all individuals who reside in Michigan. Except for a foreign exchange student who is not a United States citizen, a public school academy shall not enroll a pupil who is not a Michigan resident.
Academy admissions may be limited to pupils within a particular age range/grade level or on any other basis that would be legal if used by a Michigan public school district. Siblings of currently enrolled pupils shall have enrollment preference. However, the Academy may not provide a preference to children of Board members or Academy employees. The Academy shall allow any pupil who was enrolled in the immediately preceding academic year to re-enroll in the appropriate age range/grade level unless that grade is not offered.
No student may be denied participation in the application process due to lack of student records. If the Academy receives more applications for enrollment than there are spaces available, pupils shall be selected for enrollment through a random selection drawing. The Academy will provide legal notice or advertisement of the application and enrollment process in a local newspaper of general circulation. The legal notice or advertisement will include the process and/or location(s) for requesting and submitting applications, the beginning date and the ending date of the application period, and the date, time, and place the random selection drawing(s) will be held, if needed.
The legal notice or advertisement of the application period shall be designed to inform individuals that are most likely to be interested in attending the Academy. The Academy, being an equal opportunity educational institution, shall be committed to good-faith affirmative action efforts to seek out, create and serve diverse student body.
The application period shall be a minimum of two weeks in duration, with evening and/or weekend times available. The Academy shall accept applications throughout the year. If openings occur during the academic year, students shall be enrolled. If openings do not exist, applicants shall be placed on the official waiting list. The waiting list shall cease to exist at the beginning of the next application period.
In the event there are openings in the class for which students have applied, students shall be admitted according to the official waiting list. The position on the waiting list shall be determined by the random selection drawing. If there is no waiting list, students shall be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
