Our Admissions Process
Submit an application any time along with a non-refundable $50.00 Application Fee. Your application will be automatically added to our wait list.
If space is available and all signs of readiness are met, your child will be accepted to the School. You will be notified of acceptance through a phone call and a mailed acceptance card.
A tour of our school is required in the admissions process, and will help give a sense of the Franklin community. You can schedule a tour by calling us at 202-966-7747.
A $500 non-refundable enrollment fee and $1500 non-refundable tuition deposit will be due to the school by the date specified on your acceptance card. The $1500 will be credited towards your first tuition payment. Registration is made for the entire school year.
The School will call you to schedule a play date (Primary students only). The play date is an informal classroom visit involving your child, a Montessori teacher and the Head of School.
Complete all health forms, immunization records, and the emergency form and return them to the office. Enrollment may not commence until all required forms and fees have been received.
All children entering the Primary Program at Franklin must be completely toilet trained and independent in their use of bathroom facilities.
In the case of withdrawal, a written letter of intent to withdraw is submitted to the School accompanied by a non-refundable withdrawal fee ($500 for 10 and 11 month programs, $1000 for 12 month program). This letter shall be effective on the first day of the calendar month following the date of submission ("the Effective Date")
Children with special needs may be enrolled at Franklin if their developmental and social needs can be met with reasonable accommodations and without fundamentally altering the educational and developmental program offered by the School.
