Enrollment

OCTOBER OPEN HOUSE!

Click here to sign up for our October Open House, October 27th 6:00-7:00 pm! Get some handy information, meet some of our teaching staff and administration, and get to know our community. You’ll notice that we have condensed each slot into 30 minutes. Our goal is to keep our time together in bigger groups a little briefer. Please bring your mask and any questions you might have for us. We’re looking forward to meeting you! 

 

Enrollment Information for the 2021-2022 School Year:

Openings:

We currently have one spot available in the 3-year-old mixed age classroom for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

There is no before or aftercare available at this time. If you are interested in these specific positions, please email Kasey and Whitney at info@missoulacommunityschool.org. 

 

Each year we begin accepting applications for the upcoming school year on November 1st. Anyone who did not have the desired spot available this year is strongly encouraged to apply again for the next school year and to apply early.

General Timeline

In-house re-enrollment, for currently enrolled families, begins mid winter each year.  During that time, currently enrolled families have priority in selecting schedules and securing spots for the coming year, including spots for siblings.  In-house re-enrollment continues through late January/early February.  Any re-enrollment requests or requests for schedule changes after that time will be filed and processed along with requests for new families. 

MCS staff will then process new family applications in the order in which they were received.  Calls to new families began in early March. Most of our spots have been offered and we are still accepting applications for specific age groups. Once you have applied on the Google form, we will work to be as timely as possible in reaching out. Thanks for understanding that this process takes time and we will contact you as soon as possible. Everyone who has filed an application will be called and informed of your status.

Visiting the school:
MCS is limiting the number of people who enter the school at this time.  We will be offering limited in-person tours for prospective students. Please see above for upcoming Open House dates. We will also be offering open houses in November and January. As a first step, please watch the video on this page for insight into our classrooms. 

Tuition and Financial Assistance:
Go to our Hours and Tuition page for a complete explanation of our tuition and fees. For full information on our financial assistance programs, refer to our “Is financial aid available?” section.

Who will my child’s teacher be? Can I make a request?
It is not possible to answer the first question until late summer, since our Small Groups are not formed until that time. We want parents to know that ALL of our teachers are here because we believe they are outstanding at what they do. A teacher unfamiliar to you or new to the school may just be a great fit for your child! We discourage teacher requests for these reasons; thanks for understanding!

I have so many more questions!
Great! We have a list of common enrollment questions and answers on our “Frequently Asked Questions” page.

Contact the school office at: (406) 542-2833 or email us with any questions at info@missoulacommunityschool.org
