Thank you for your interest in joining our community! We are always happy to speak with new parents and help you learn more about our school. There is a lot to consider when choosing the right school for your child and our application process is designed to help the school and families get to know one another. If you are offered enrollment at Fiore, we enter into a partnership together. It is important that we both take this time to ask questions and learn more. Below you will find the steps to our application process.
Things to Note
Programs are available for children between 16 months and 15 years of age with morning, school day, and all day options available. All programs are 5 days a week. See our Programs page for more details.
We accept new applications year round. However, new students will typically start school in September. We will consider other enrollment dates based on our availability and most ideal starting time for your child.
We offer need-based financial aid to qualified students each year. Our financial aid application will be resubmitted annually. While we wish we could provide aid to all applicants with demonstrated need, please know that we receive more applications than funds available. Our financial aid application will be published shortly and will be due by December 10th for current families and January 20th for new families.
Step 1: Schedule a Tour
At this time, tours are taking place virtually over Zoom.
Register for one of our Prospective Parent Tours. Attending a tour allows you to see first hand what an authentic Montessori education has to offer. You will have the opportunity to see inside our classrooms, learn about our school, and ask any questions you may have. We view this as a valuable step in preparing you for what our community is like. Tours are required for all parents considering our programs. After the tour, you will receive a link to our application.
Note: Our tours are an hour in length. Please plan to attend for the full hour. We also request that you have your video turned on so that we can all have a more personal experience.
Step 2: Apply
If after the tour, you believe that Fiore could be a good fit for your family, we invite you to complete an application to continue the process. You will submit a completed application form along with a $60 non-refundable application fee (this can be paid via PayPal). If your child is coming from another school setting with progress reports or has any evaluation/diagnosis reports, please submit them at the time of applying.
Applications may be submitted until January 20th to ensure consideration for the following school year. Any applications received after this date will be considered in our second round of admissions for any remaining availability.
Step 3: Parent Interview
Once your application has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email and a link to sign up for a parent interview with our Director of Enrollment. We use this call to learn more about your family and answer any questions that you may have. Both parents are required to attend (when applicable).
Step 4: Student Visit
The student visit is a chance for one of our guides to meet and get to know your child. For younger students, the visit is short and may include a conversation, observations, and/or a short lesson. Older students will spend up to a full day in the classroom. The visit will enable us to assess whether our school will be able to serve your student's needs and help us determine the proper classroom placement.
Step 5: Enrollment Decision
Once you have completed all of the steps to our application process, we will review all of the information that has been gathered and determine if our school will be a good fit for you family and if we are able to serve your student in our environments. If yes, and we have a space available, we will send you a one year agreement to enroll your child. You will have 2-3 days to decide and accept our offer.
