Admissions

Our Parent Participation Philosophy

At Monarch Community School families and staff participate together in the developmentally appropriate educational process, empowering them to be able to enjoy the "whole child" learning approach where academic, social, physical and emotional growth are equally important, interrelated and acknowledged. Please read Monarch Community School's Vision Statement.

Open House

Interested in Enrolling? Please attend an Open house either Tuesday, February 13, 2018 or Thursday, March 1, 2018, 6:30-8:00pm. At the open house you can schedule a school tour during the month of March.

All interested families must go through open enrollment which opens Feb 27 and closes March 15. This means registering at your neighborhood school and filing open enrollment paperwork to attend Monarch.
