The Application Process

At Ridgemont, we provide a happy and enriching learning environment for your child. Here, he will know the joys of academic exploration and also have a chance for social interaction with other young children. Your child is constantly absorbing the world around him, and at Ridgemont, we want his first learning experiences to be positive. We invite you to come and see for yourself what a delightful place a child’s world is.

The Application Process

  1. Parents should observe the school in operation before beginning the enrollment process. An appointment can be made to visit by calling the school office.
  2. Submit application with the non-refundable $75 application fee.
  3. We will call to arrange a mutually convenient time for you to bring your child in for a visit.
  4. After the school interview, we will notify you by mail as to whether we will be able to admit your child.
  5. The letter of acceptance will contain a Tuition Payment Agreement, which will describe the terms of annual enrollment. This agreement must be completed, accompanied by a deposit, and returned within 10 days.

The Ridgemont Montessori School is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, or national origin. Enrollment is based on application and interview.
