Waterfront Academy welcomes all prospective students and their families. We admit students regardless of race, creed, color, and national or ethnic origin, and are non-discriminatory in all our policies and school-administered programs. 

Any student who is toilet-trained and able to leave the primary adult without difficulty may be eligible for admission to the Primary class.

Waterfront Academy's affiliation with the Church informs all its policies. Admissions decisions are based on many factors, the most important of which are the welfare of the children, of the parents, and of maintaining a Montessori environment focused on excellence, character, and safety. We also give priority consideration to siblings of enrolled students and to children of alumni families.

If received after deadlines, we shall process your admission and update you with our final decision within 60 days of receiving payment and all documentation.
