How to Apply
Students may be enrolled for the current school term at any time during the school year as long as spaces are available. Enrollment opens for the upcoming summer and fall terms after Spanish Immersion Montessori School (SIMS) Open House in February. Any requests for special accommodations or changes to the enrollment procedures listed below must be made in writing to the school office and approved by the Director. Priority enrollment is always given to current students followed by siblings and then students with prior SIMS experience. All other placements are made on a first come, first served basis.
Step 1: Inquire & Visit-School Tour
Set up a tour with the school office. You will receive basic school information at that time and be able to see the school facilities and ask questions.
Step 2: Apply and Submit Application Form and Enrollment Fees
Once you have decided that Spanish Immersion Montessori School is a good fit for your family, you are welcome to apply.
- A non refundable, registration fee of $ 150.00 to cover administrative work.
- A deposit of equal to one month of tuition to secure placement during the admission process. The deposit is applied for tuition in the last month of the year’s contract.
The deposit is applied to tuition in the last month of the year’s contract. Checks should be made payable to ABC Spanish in Motion and mailed to 991 Boylston Street, Newton, MA 02461
For Returning students a deposit of equal one month is applied to the first tuition payment. Returning students are required to pay a $125 registration fee each new school year.
Step 3: Decisions-Select A Start Date and Return Student Enrollment Forms
Members of the administration will meet regularly to review applicants and select families for admission. We mail admission decisions in late May for children to start that fall. Late applications for open positions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Step 4: Enroll
Upon reaching this step, students may enroll immediately if space is available in their age group or they will be placed on a wait list for the first available opening. Students may also choose to set a start date for the beginning of a summer term or the beginning of the following school term. Families will receive their student’s full enrollment forms at this time. All forms must be returned to the school office no later than May 30th.
Once offered admission, families must complete an Admission Agreement and pay both a Registration Fee and a Final Balance Deposit (one month’s tuition) to secure the space. Both of these payments are non-refundable. We will schedule a paperwork and orientation to the program appointment with you at school and provide you with an enrollment packet to take home.
Step 5: Classroom Visit (optional but highly encouraged)
We recommend you come with your child to visit the classroom and meet the teachers prior to your child’s first day. Make arrangements through the school office for your child to spend 1one hour in our School classroom prior to their first full day of enrollment. This allows students to make an easier transition into their classrooms, an opportunity for parents to meet the student’s teachers, and for both the school and family to gather feedback on student readiness for the classroom.
