Welcome to Orion Montessori School (OMS). Thank you for your interest in our school. As a passionate Montessorian, advocate of early childhood education, and now the CEO/Founder of OMS, I am delighted to introduce you to our school’s community and environment.
The admissions procedure is designed to give parents an opportunity to learn about our school, its philosophy and policies and to meet our administration and faculty. It also gives us an opportunity to determine whether we are able to meet the needs and expectations of the parents and their respective families. Our goal is to enroll families who will both benefit from and contribute to what the school has to offer.
OMS admits students without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.
Our admission process and registration entails a private tour of our school as the first step, followed by submission of application to be considered for review and enrollment. Admissions are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Through the admissions process, we strive to begin the association of creating a strong, long-lasting, and collaborative connection between each new child and their family and OMS.
I look forward to personally introducing you to the school, helping you make a truly informed decision about your child’s education and potentially welcoming you as a part of the OMS community.
Steps to Enrolling your Child
Step 1: Email email@example.com or call 1.877.205.2802 to schedule a private tour of OMS. We highly recommend you to visit us unaccompanied by your child, so you are able to fully engage in the tour of our school.
Step 2: After the tour, if you are interested in pursuing enrollment, you will be provided the application forms. Additionally, you will be informed of the waitlist and guaranteed enrollment categories.
Step 3: Complete the application forms and email them to us to either be placed on a waitlist or reserve a guaranteed spot. All our enrollment is on a first-come-first-serve basis and space availability.
Step 4: Upon acceptance, you will be required to pay the non-refundable initial deposit to either be placed on waitlist or reserve a guaranteed space at OMS.
Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Parents are welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1.877.205.2802 or to schedule a date and time for a private tour of our campus. Our parent tours are private in order to maintain the highest level of security and confidentiality of information that is exchanged. One of our Directors will personally coordinate with each family to schedule a mutually convenient date and time to visit OMS.
Additionally, you are welcome to reach the CEO/Founder, Shriee Srinivas at email@example.com directly and/or copy her in your emails with questions, tour requests, and concerns.
Tours are scheduled throughout the year on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Tour appointments are not offered on Mondays and Fridays unless the need arises from a non-local family. Post initial tours, parents are welcome to schedule a 20-30-minute observation session if the like to see the children at work. Observation sessions are typically scheduled between 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and are by appointment only based on the respective classrooms’ schedule and availability.
Prospective parents are encouraged to attend the tour without their children during the initial visit, so they are able to dedicate uninterrupted time and attention and briefly see the children at work in all the program levels at OMS (Toddler, Primary and Elementary). Parents will also have an opportunity to hear more about the school’s history and philosophy, and have their questions answered.
OMS balances classrooms as much as possible by age and gender. Except for the Toddler Community, which currently serves children from 2 years through 3 years, all other programs are structured in three-year age spans as traditional and authentic mixed age group Montessori classrooms. Our Primary program is for 3- to 6-year-old children. The Elementary serves 6- to 12-year-old children (grades 1 to 6).
The Infant community for 3 months to 18 months and Middle School programs for 12- to 15-year-old children (grades 7 to 9) are coming soon.
