Join Our Waitlist

Montessori Academy of Slidell invites you to join our waitlist for future enrollment! Subscribe to our newsletter for updates on upcoming enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year!


Montessori Academy of Slidell has a non-discriminatory admissions policy for children who are six weeks of age through primary age. Parents who are interested in their child attending our school should submit an online registration (link below) as soon as possible. Parents are encouraged to visit the school to tour the facility, meet the teachers, and observe the classes in action. Please call or email the office to make an appointment or with any questions you may have.


 The Admissions Process

When we receive an application to join our waitlist, you will be emailed our information as well as our tuition prices. The earlier you place your child on our waitlist, the greater the chances that your child will be offered a spot.

Order of Admission: There are three phases to our admissions process:

Phase One: Siblings and children of alumni are accepted first. In order to receive sibling or alumni priority, application must be received by January 1st.

Phase Two: Re-enrollment of current students continues until January 31st.

Phase Three: As spaces become available, new students are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once a space is offered and you have already had a tour, parents have 24 hours to accept the spot. If you have not had a tour with MAS, we allow the parents 2 days to tour and make their decision. If your child is not accepted for the year applied, we will contact you in November to see if you would like your child to remain on our waitlist for the following year.
