Admission Procedures: Montessori-Grade 3

Applications received after January 15, 2020 are considered late applications. Click here for late applicant procedures. We ask that you file your application with consideration for the time required to test and interview your daughter, as well as to receive her records and recommendation forms. The Admission Committee strongly recommends that you apply early to ensure sufficient time to complete the student’s file.
Candidates who file applications after January 7, 2020 cannot be guaranteed an interview.

The following items are required before the Admission Committee can consider an applicant’s file complete:
  • Application Form: Online application form and fee of $125.
  • Academic Records including Standardized Test Scores and Teacher Recommendations: Carrollton requires two recommendations (Principal and Teacher recommendations) and records for the past 4 years your daughter has been in a school which must be submitted electronically by the student’s current school, however, the parents are responsible for requesting the recommendations through School Recs.  The recommendations must be requested online.  You will need the recommender's first and last name, as well as their email addresses for recommendation submission.
