Enrollment Information (K-8)
APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE 2022-2023 AND 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEARS
To be lottery eligible for next school year (2023-2024), applications are due by February 15, 2023. Applications submitted after the deadline will still be accepted, though they have missed the lottery and will be placed on the wait list in the order received.
As a public charter school, MMCA maintains an open enrollment policy whereby any student eligible to attend public school in California is eligible to attend MMCA. We are currently full in just about all grade levels. If you are interested in enrolling your child(ren) at MMCA, your best course of action is to:
Fill out and submit our online enrollment application (button link on right side of page) - receipt of this application ensures a spot on our waiting list.
Call 916.630.1510 to schedule a tour with our Administrator.
If space is available and you have received a call or letter to enroll your child, please click our Online Enrollment Link to the right. You will need to have an email address to create an account and complete the online enrollment for your child. Print and bring to the school office the confirmation, along with your child's birth certificate, immunization record, Request for Student's Cumulative Records, and Student Information Survey. If your child is entering kindergarten you will also need to submit the Oral Health Assessment and Health Report for School Entry before school begins in August.
* Please note: Classroom Observations may be scheduled in advance as well. Please see our Classroom Observation Policy for more information.
The Enrollment Process (Lottery)
APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE 2023-24 SCHOOL YEAR
Please note that a separate application must be submitted for each school year.
November 15th through February 15th of the preceding school year, MMCA accepts enrollment applications for all students by grade level. At the end of February, classroom configurations are determined, and the number of spots open per grade level is decided. If the demand exceeds the number of available spaces, enrollment (by grade level) is determined based on the following preferences first:
1. Existing MMCA students (re-enrollment forms due by February 15th).
2. Siblings of existing MMCA students (an application must be filed by February 15th).
3. MMCA staff children.
4. Children with verifiable (letter from school director) Montessori education experience (no less than one full academic year in previous three calendar years) will have weighted preference – not to exceed 50% of spots available.
5. Rocklin Residents
6. Placer County Residents
Students that do not gain enrollment via the lottery are placed on our waiting list. Should space in that grade level become available during the school year, MMCA will contact students from the waiting list to fill the vacancies.
If you know of someone who may be interested in enrolling his or her children at MMCA, direct them to our website and/or have them call the office to schedule a tour!
