Admission Process

Our admissions process is designed to familiarize parents with our educational and New Church philosophy to ensure that the Oak Arbor School is the right fit for your family.

Every child reveals himself, and it is remarkable how clearly individual differences stand out if we follow this procedure. ” Maria Montessori


All students applying for the first time must:

Must be deemed ready for the school grade they wish to enter.
Primary Classroom
(3 - 6-Year-olds, including Kindergarten)
Students must be 3 years old by July 1, 2023, and be potty trained to be eligible for the first year of Primary Classroom (P1).
Students must be 4 years old by July 1, 2023, for the second year of Primary Classroom (P2).
Students must be 5 years old by July 1st, 2023, to be eligible for the third year of the Primary Classroom (P3 - Kindergarten).
Students should not have physical, behavioral, or learning disabilities that, in the judgment of the Oak Arbor Administration, are beyond the scope of our staff’s training or the school's resources.
Students need to be able to communicate at chronological age level in the English language.


The goal of the admissions process is to diligently work with the parents of the child to see if the Oak Arbor School can serve your family. With that goal, the Admissions Staff will move as quickly as possible to process your application in the best interests of your child.

The Oak Arbor School does not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin.
