Thank you for considering The Montessori School of San Antonio (MSSA) for your child’s education. We encourage you to use the admissions process to become better acquainted with the school, its goals, and the Montessori philosophy.

ADMISSIONS POLICY

The Montessori School of San Antonio is co-educational and non-denominational. Admission decisions are based on the space available and an evaluation of the suitability of MSSA for each student. All incoming students should be three years old and fully toilet trained. Generally, priority consideration for enrollment is given to applicants in the following order:

  1. Qualified siblings of current MSSA students
  2. Qualified students with previous Montessori experience
  3. All other qualified applicants

The Montessori School of San Antonio strives for a diverse student body and actively seeks children who will be independent, motivated learners, kind spirits, and good citizens. We strive to ensure the appropriate gender and age balance in each classroom.

MSSA seeks to create an optimal developmental environment for all students. The creation of peer groupings is very important; therefore, great care is taken to maintain gender and age balance in each classroom. Each multi-age classroom has a targeted maximum of 24 students, led by a Montessori-certified teacher and a trained assistant.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EDUCATION

The Montessori School of San Antonio admits students of any race, color, gender, creed, or national origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, creed or national origin in employment or in its administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial aid programs, athletics, or other school-administered programs.

“We chose MSSA because it provides an individualized education within a balanced, whole child centered environment.”
