Prior to Applying
We encourage all parents/guardians to visit the school prior to submitting an application or tuition contract. It is best to visit the school between November and March of the school year prior to when you expect your child to start. If you are relocating from out of town, we realize that certain accommodations may need to be made.
Complete a Registration Application
Open enrollment typically begins in mid-February following our re-enrollment period. Applications are reviewed on a first-come first-served basis, so we encourage families to reach out in the late fall or winter to begin the enrollment process as classrooms may be full in the spring. Once you have completed your tour, submit a Registration Application with your $75 application fee.
Schedule a Shadow Day
Schedule a Shadow Day in the classroom your child will be enrolling in with the Education Director.
Following the shadow day you will have a follow-up conversation with the Education Director about how your child’s day went. Depending on the availability of the Education Director and when your teacher has the opportunity to discuss your child’s day, this conversation may happen at pick-up or a follow-up meeting may be scheduled.
When setting up a Shadow Day, this may be a good time to meet with the Office Manager to discuss any financial questions or concerns.
Once you have received confirmation from the Education Director that your child has been accepted into the program, you should submit a tuition contract for the school year that your child plans to attend. If a tuition contract is not available for the school year you are looking to enroll, please communicate to the Education Director, or Office Manager your family’s intentions and we will send you a tuition contract when it is available.
Have your pediatrician or family doctor send us your child’s immunization information. Immunizations are required for all Early Childhood students to comply with our licensing requirements. Immunization records and/or a religious exemption form is required for all elementary students. We will request this information from you during back to school preparations, but it is always easiest for us to have this information in advance.
Request your child’s current or previous school to transfer records to Bozeman Summit School. Student records are required for all students coming to us from another school. If we do not receive their records prior to the start of the school year, we will reach out to you to sign a records release form and can request their records.
While your application and tuition contract will reserve your child’s place in the classroom during our enrollment period, enrollment is not finalized until we have received your tuition deposit(s). Tuition deposits are billed in April (Elementary only) and May (Early Childhood and Elementary). A one-month deposit is required in our Early Childhood classroom and a two-month deposit is required in the Elementary classrooms. These deposits are applied as a credit on April and May invoices of the following year.
Back-to-School and Welcome packets for all students will be mailed in early August prior to the start of the school year. Packets will include a list of any necessary supplies, back-to-school events, outstanding forms, and more.
