K-8 Enrollment 


Current Enrollment Status


Enrollment for 2021-2022 is full and we are running a

waitlist for all grade levels.  To be added to the waitlist, you may submit an Intent to Enroll, accessed by the link below.  


Thank you for your interest in the kindergarten-8th year programs at St. Vrain Community Montessori School. Applications are considered based on the order in which they are received, although currently enrolled and returning students do have first priority for each new school year.


Applicants for kindergarten positions must be 5 years old and 1st year applicants must be 6 years old as of October 1, 2021 for the 2021-2022 school year.  


Families interested in enrolling their child(ren) at SVCMS are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with our programs, learn more about Montessori education,  and/or attend an informational meeting.


Enrollment in K-8 is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with consideration of the following enrollment priorities:

  1. Currently-enrolled returning K-7 SVCMS students.

  2. Children who attended preschool at SVCMS for at least one year prior to entering kindergarten. First come, first served.

  3. Siblings of admitted K-8 SVCMS students. Sibling priority is not offered to elementary or middle school students based on an enrolled preschool sibling. If sibling priority is forfeited once, sibling priority will no longer be honored. Intent to Enroll forms must be received during Enrollment Window #1 (December 1st-January 15th) to receive sibling priority. 

  4. Children of SVCMS staff. Consideration may be given to FTE status.

  5. Children of current or former SVCMS Board members who completed at least one term of service. First come, first served.

  6. Applicants for grades 2-8 who are transferring from a public Montessori School, first come first served.

  7. All St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD) residents. First come, first served.

  8. All non-SVVSD residents. First come, first served.


Full-Day Kindergarten

For the 2021-2022 school year, all kindergarten enrollment will be full-day (pending public health conditions)


Year Level Placement (Years 1-8)

Students enrolling from either a non-accredited private school or from a homeschool educational program will be assessed for year level placement.


If an accredited school is unable to produce student records verifying appropriate year level, prospective students will be place tested. Offers of admission will be contingent on results of readiness assessments.


Families of students seeking enrollment from the above-mentioned educational backgrounds will be contacted in early 2021 to schedule readiness assessments, which will be administered by SVCMS Guides. Year level placement will be determined by the results of these assessments.


Admission for Students with Disabilities

In accordance with its operating agreement with St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD), in instances where a student has an existing Individual Education Plan (IEP), SVCMS’s acceptance of a student’s application for admission is contingent upon the determination by the IEP Team that the student can receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment at the school, with or without reasonable modification. If the determination is that the IEP cannot be fully implemented at the school and therefore a FAPE would not be available to be provided at the school, the student’s application for admission will be denied and the student’s current placement will remain as determined by the prior IEP Team meeting, unless changed at the school IEP Team meeting.
