Interested in enrolling at Belle Meade? We consider applicants on a rolling basis. Students who do well at Belle Meade have a strong desire to join a tight knit academic community, spend a lot of time outdoors, and work hard at academics; they understand the school’s unique mission and pedagogy.

We meet each student where they are and create an environment that fosters engaged, differentiated learning. We welcome students of all backgrounds, with or without prior Montessori experience.

Ready to schedule a visit, or want to speak with our Head of School and learn more? You can do that right here. You can also email or call us.

  • Lower School: * (540) 987-0267

Interested families are also invited to visit school either during the week or during one of our annual spring/fall open houses. When school is in session, student applicants spend a day at school (Monday or Friday) to experience Belle Meade. Likewise, parents meet with the Head of School to discuss academic and individual expectations.

We encourage applicants to begin this process during the spring in preparation for the coming school year. When appropriate, applications will be considered for acceptance during the year. Previous academic performance will be considered. A completed application form should be sent with a check made out to Belle Meade School for $50.
