    Admission Policy

    Admissions decisions are based upon the space available and an evaluation of the suitability of SNHMA for each child. Generally, priority consideration for enrollment is given to applicants in the following order: (1) qualified siblings of current SNHMA students; (2) qualified students with previous Montessori experience; (3) all other qualified applicants. Great care is taken to maintain a balance of gender, age, and learning differences and styles in each classroom.

    Southern NH Montessori Academy is a non-sectarian Montessori school that does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, disabilities, marital status or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational policies, admission or hiring policies, and other school administered programs.
