We consider applicants under a rolling admission policy. Qualified applicants display a desire to attend Belle Meade School and an understanding of the school’s unique program. We meet each student where he/she is and create an environment that fosters engaged, differentiated learning. We welcome students of all backgrounds with or without prior Montessori experience.

Interested families are invited to visit school either during the week or during one of our annual spring/fall open houses. Student applicants spend a day at school 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.

Please call Belle Meade School at (540) 987-8970 or email to schedule a visit. A completed application form should be sent with a check made out to Belle Meade School for $50.
