Enrollment

The Montessori philosophy is based on a three-year curriculum. We strongly recommend children be enrolled for at least two years to ensure they receive the maximum benefit of the program.

GMA is a non-profit organization and must meet expenses of a continuing nature, based on estimated tuition for the entire year. If it is necessary to withdraw the child, a written notice of intent to withdraw must be given to the school one month in advance of the withdrawal date or that month’s tuition is still due.
