The program at Tuskawilla Montessori Academy is designed to meet the needs of children from the age of three years through eighth grade. Our enrollment procedure does not discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, age or national origin.
Parents interested in enrolling a child should use the following procedure:
- Contact the school office at (407) 678-3879 and arrange a visit/tour. Parents will make an appointment to visit the school first without their children. This provides a chance for observation, for introduction to the Montessori approach and for questions. We recommend that parents make a list of questions before the tour.
- The second visit for 1st through 8th grade students is a child-alone shadow day with the prospective teacher, which allows the teacher and child a chance to become acquainted. The admission procedure includes submitting copies of school records, any available letters of recommendation, and an interview with the teacher on the shadow day.
- Complete the registration forms and return. Upon acceptance, the registration and supply fee is due in order to secure placement. Please be sure to complete all spaces requesting information, especially parents’ work numbers and emergency numbers. All health, immunization, and medical forms, as well as the first month tuition fee, must be in the office upon enrollment.
