Admission Process

Step 1: Schedule a Tour

We believe that school should be an extension of the family and we hope that our school philosophy is consistent with your family values. We would like to ensure that our school is a good fit for your family. We ask that all prospective families make an appointment to tour our school. 

Step 2: Family Interview

Upon decision to possibly enroll, a personal interview with school director is required with prospective parents to determine that the school’s facilities and programs fit the child’s physical, emotional and development needs. 

Decision Process

Admissions are made without regard to race, religion, or nationality. Admission placements are made with consideration to creating a developmental continuum that will facilitate peer relationships and gender balanced groups. Preference is given to siblings. Most openings occur in the fall but we will fill vacancies should they occur mid-year.

Step 3: Enrollment

Enrollment begins with submitting an admission application agreement.

Prior to admission, all state forms must be filled out and returned and fees to be paid by parents/guardians. No child will be admitted to Marco Polo Children’s School if any of the forms are incomplete.
