2020-2021 Open Enrollment Application Announcement
Mountain West Montessori Academy’s (MWMA) Open Enrollment (OE) period for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on Monday, January 6, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. through Monday, February 3, 2020. The first lottery will be held on Tuesday, February 4, 2020. Any openings that become available after February 4th will be filled on an as-needed basis throughout the year using a computerized random lottery process. Upon acceptance into the school, families will be notified via e-mail through the computerized lottery program and will be given additional steps to complete in the registration process and what timeline they will need to follow.
Although students currently attending MWMA will not be placed in a lottery each year but will need to sign up siblings who want to attend MWMA through the OE process. Current MWMA students will need to indicate their intent to return by registering for the 2020-2021 school year and complete an Annual Policies Acknowledgment. This information will be sent to parents on January 6, 2020.
Please keep in mind if you are enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year and your child has not been selected through the lottery program, you will need to re-enroll in the database for the 2020-2021 school year. Students not chosen through the lottery program will not be "rolled" over to the next school year. Preferences allowed by law for employees, board members, or siblings of current students will be allowed in accordance with our charter application and state and federal laws.

Completion and submission of an enrollment application does not guarantee admission to, or constitute acceptance in, Mountain West Montessori Academy. Please be sure to fill out ALL appropriate information and requested fields before you submit the application. Be sure to double check dates, phone numbers, and email addresses. It is imperative that all information is complete and accurate. Be sure to record your confirmation number which allows you to update important changes as they become necessary. This will also be e-mailed to you automatically. If the number of student applications exceeds the number of positions available at MWMA, students will be randomly chosen to fill available positions; this process is referred to as a lottery.
Every effort will be made to accept all siblings in an individual family, but this may not be possible due to the cap on class sizes and the lottery process. Siblings of students currently in the school will be given preference if openings become available.
