Belle Meade has recently completed a comprehensive COVID 19 Plan to meet state requirements for opening with the first day of school on August 26th for the 2020-2021 school year. The plan has been reviewed and approved with  by the Health Department’s District Population Health Epidemiologist and accepted by the Department of Education. Highlights for safe school opening include cloth masks (please wash regularly), daily health screening, cleaning procedures, and physical distancing protocols. Click here to read the plan and review with your children prior to visiting Belle Meade Montessori School.

Interested families are 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.
