Enrollment Procedures: School Year

We have one spot left in The Mayapple School’s Kinderforest program for the 2018/2019 school year. Enrollment for the 2018/2019 school year for preschool at The Mayapple School is currently full. If you would like to add your child to the wait list, please send in an application without the supply or registration fee. There is no fee to be added to the wait list. When/if a spot becomes available for your child, you will be notified by phone and/or e-mail, at which point you will have the opportunity to accept or decline enrollment.

Because The Mayapple School will be moving its physical location in Dec/Jan 2018, we are closed to prospective preschool and summer camp family visits until after our move. If you are interested in enrollment for the 2019/2020 school year, or 2019 summer camp, sign ups for late winter and spring visits will be available at this page late fall 2018. Families interested in the remaining Kinderforest spot should contact directly to inquire.

Enrollment for the 2019/2020 preschool school year will be available for applicants who have no special needs that cannot be meet by The Mayapple School and who are fully self-toileting during the school day. Although The Mayapple School is designed for children who are at least three years old, a small number of spaces may be available for children who will turn three during the school year and are at least two and a half by the start of the school year, provided that they show developmental readiness for the program. Enrollment decisions are made without discrimination in regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, national origin; or parental age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status. Please note that at this time The Mayapple School has a very limited ability to serve children with special needs. Generally, all applicants for the 2019/2020 school year that are received by the priority deadline of April 15th, 2019 will be considered and children placed in the following order:

  1. Children of employees
  2. Children of currently serving Directors on The Mayapple School board, who have been actively and productively serving for at least three months, and who will continue to serve for such a time so that consecutive time served is at least nine months in total.
  3. Current students and siblings of current students
  4. Former students and siblings of former students
  5. All other qualified applicants, with the goal of creating a balanced mixed-age classroom. Additionally, one or more spaces may be saved for scholarship students at the discretion of The Mayapple School Board.


Enrollment Procedures: Summer Camp

Enrollment for Summer Camp 2019 will be available with online registration starting in late winter 2019. All campers must be fully self-toileting, have no special needs that cannot be meet by The Mayapple School, separate well from parent/guardians, and be at least three years of age or older by the last day of the camp session that they will be attending (no spaces will be available outside of this age range except for children of employees). Registration will be opened first for a brief time to current Mayapple School students, after which registration will be opened to all other qualified applicants on a first come, first-served basis until full. Some spaces may be saved for scholarship campers at the discretion of The Mayapple School Board. The Mayapple School will not use a lottery system for summer camp registration for summer 2019.
