Step 5: Schedule a Child Visit
Once your child’s application, fee and student records have been received, we will contact you to arrange a time for your child to tour our school and visit the classroom. Toddlers visit with their parents, while most Primary children will have a brief visit in the classroom without their parents. Elementary visits will vary in length and are agreed upon by the family and guides. Classroom visits are often customized to each child’s specific needs and readiness to join the classroom community.
Step 6: Admission Decision
Admission to Cobb School Montessori is determined with the utmost consideration for the individual applicant and the existing community. Upon notification of acceptance, a 10% tuition deposit is required to guarantee a student’s space. The non-refundable deposit will be applied to the year’s tuition. When individual classrooms reach their capacity, children may be added to the waiting list.
