“Thank you for your interest in the Christian Montessori School of Lake Norman. We look forward to hearing from you!”
-Sonya Curry

Christian Montessori School of Lake Norman is committed to bringing young people together from a broad spectrum of ethnic, national, religious and economic back-grounds. We welcome diversity and teach our children to broaden their perspective of the world through friendships, mutual respect, and understanding. Each new application is carefully considered according to the individual and their learning style. Our goal is to help families find the best match between student and school while at the same time recognizing that the parent is the first educator and we are partners with them.

After reading through our literature, we encourage you to reach out to our Head of School, Tom Cook.  Upon review of our Open House Folder, you will be contacted to conduct a 30-minute school tour. We currently will follow all Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and CDC requirements concerning COVID-19 and no parent will be invited into the building without a face mask covering. Children cannot attend our 30-minute school tour.  Once you feel confident that you would like your child to attend our school, you will submit an Enrollment Application (located in Open House Folder) and an application fee of $100. Applications need to be printed, completed, and submitted as a hard-copy with attached application fee. Once the application is received, your child will be invited to spend a selected amount of time in our classroom.

We carefully consider each application in the order submitted. To apply, complete and return the Application form to our school office as soon as possible. Please also provide a check for the $100 application fee. As soon as we receive your application, we contact you to arrange for your child’s first classroom visit at Christian Montessori School of Lake Norman. At this time, we will ask for your son’s or daughter’s present school records, and previous test results as well as teachers’ recommendations. Because we cannot officially accept a student until your entire child’s records have arrived, we urge you to ensure that individual paperwork is updated by completion of your application.

During your child’s school visit, we will arrange for you to drop off for a period of one (1) hour. Student visits will occur in the morning during our un-interrupted Montessori work period and will begin at 8:30am.

Normally, our Admissions Committee will be able to respond to your application within a week of your child’s visit to notify you of the admissions decision.
