What are the factors for admissions?
Providence: A Christian Montessori Community is committed to making an appropriate match between the student and the school that is in keeping with our mission, vision, and values. All applications are reviewed and assessed by considering the following factors:
- Evidence of parental goals that align with the Montessori philosophy
- Evidence of parental goals that align with a Christian Community
- Evidence of child readiness for a Montessori program which promotes respect, independence, inter-dependence and focus.
Does our family need to have a FACTS account?
Yes, all Providence families sign up for a FACTS account for tuition payments, the Annual Commitment Fee and incidentals (supply fees, etc.) upon enrollment.
What are the options for the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan?
Providence offers three different tuition payment plans each year. Tuition can be paid in a (1) one-time payment on Aug 5th, (2) spread over 10 months on the 5th of each month or (3) spread over 10 months with bimonthly payments. Once your Tuition Payment Plan has been selected, Providence will assume that you are continuing to use the same payment plan for the remainder of your years at Providence, unless you let the business office know by June 1st (two months before the new year’s tuition is billed).
What is the Annual Commitment Advance?
The Annual Commitment Advance lets Providence know that you are committed to having your children enrolled for the next school year. The $500 advance is nonrefundable and holds your place for enrollment for the following year. This will be charged to your FACTS account and withdrawn from your bank account on Feb 5th of each year. This advance will be applied to tuition costs for the following year. If your family receives DSS vouchers or Opportunity Scholarships, this amount is adjusted but is still non-refundable, regardless of the amount of grant funding you receive.
What are the required notification deadlines?
To notify us that your child will not be returning in the fall, please send a notification to [email protected] by February 1st, the opt-out deadline.
Providence makes decisions based on anticipated enrollment. Your future plans influence our current decisions.
