How to Apply with JPGMA

Welcome to Admissions at John Paul the Great Montessori Academy. Our school was founded in 2020, and is now entering its fourth year of helping to guide children on the paths designed for them by the Heavenly Father, using a blend of Montessori and classical tradition. Catholic Montessori is not limited to age and ability. It only requires a love for Truth, a willing spirit, and a good work ethic.

We have a variety of programs offered here at JPGMA, including our first year offering a Mommy and Me Program (18 months – 3 years old), Three Day a Week/Five Day a Week Primary Program (with half- day and full- day options for children ages 3-6), Elementary Program (ages 6-12), Middle School (ages 13-15), and High School (ages 15-18).

NOTE on Religious Education:

We do not offer an Atrium-only option. Atrium is included in the 3 Day/5 Day Primary and Elementary Programs. We do offer sacramental preparation for First Confession and First Holy Communion to members of our community not enrolled at JPGMA, but do not have accommodations for Confirmation preparation for children not enrolled in the Elementary/Middle School Program at JPGMA.

Currently, JPGMA is filled to capacity for the 2023-2024 school year. However, please do not hesitate to apply to get your name in. We are happy to add all admissions requests into a waiting pool, as sometimes unforeseen circumstances allow spots to open up! We will do our best to accommodate your family as quickly as possible, as soon as there is availability. For any inquiries or questions whatsoever, please feel free to reach out by emailing us at You will receive a response within 24 hours during the school year, barring weekends and holidays.
