The interested family contacts the Director of Admissions to schedule a meeting/tour of the school. Families are invited to complete an online application for enrollment. Please note that a $35.00 one-time application fee will apply. To apply, please complete PMA's online application.
Once the school visit is completed and the family wishes to continue with the enrollment process, a class visit is scheduled for the child in the classroom. The PMA application and $35.00 fee is required at this time. The visit varies in length, depending on the classroom:
Toddlers (18 months-3 years) - 1/2 hour
Primary (3-6 years) - 45 minutes to 1 hour
Lower and Upper Elementary (1st-6th grade) - full school day
Middle and High School (7th-12th) - half-day in the morning
Once the class visit is complete, the potential teacher will make a recommendation about extending an invitation. If the teacher, student and parent agree that the child is a good fit for his/her classroom, then an enrollment meeting is scheduled. The enrollment contract is a commitment between the interested family and the school. We ask that all parents/guardians attend this meeting. The family will meet with the Head of School, the Director of Admissions and the Business Manager.
After the school tour is completed, a parent may also schedule a classroom observation, as long as it is not at the same time as the child visit.
