Q: What is Continuous Enrollment?
Continuous Enrollment simply means that once your student (PreK3 – Grade 12) is accepted to the Academy, they will be enrolled until graduation OR until the parents or school decides the student will not return.
Q: How will it be different from MVA’s typical re-enrollment process?
In the past, Montverde families re-enrolled their children each winter for the next school year. Around 90 percent of our families return year after year until graduation.
Once you have signed your initial contract, your student will be automatically enrolled for the following academic year. Your student will always have a spot at MVA. No need to re-sign your contract every year.
Q: What do I get out of Continuous Enrollment?
A guaranteed seat for your student next year. Simplicity. Peace of mind.
With increasing enrollment, we are either at or near waiting pools in many grades. Placement in next year’s class is an increasingly sought-after spot. With continuous enrollment, you will be securing a seat for your student until graduation or until you tell us they will not return.
Q: How do I re-enroll my child?
Each year, we will notify families of potential tuition increases in December and send a reminder email about the annual deposit invoice in the student account. Families will have until January 31 to inform MVA if they will not be returning for the following year. Unless we hear from you, your student will automatically be enrolled and a deposit fee added to your billing account. If you do not complete the Not-Returning Form by January 31, your child will be considered enrolled for the following school year. Unless otherwise informed, you will be assigned the previously selected payment plan.
Q: When can I apply for financial aid?
Returning families can apply for financial aid through FAST beginning October 1 and must complete the financial aid process including submission of tax documents by December 13.
Requests for financial aid usually exceed the funds available. For that reason, families are encouraged to avoid late submissions, which could jeopardize the possibility of a financial aid allocation.
Q: I applied for financial aid last school year. Do I need to reapply each year?
Q: Will I continue to receive the same financial aid allocation each year? Can it increase?
Families must apply for financial aid each year and any changes in family circumstances can affect FAST’s evaluation of your financial need. There is no guarantee that the allocation will remain the same from year to year.
Q: I may want to change my payment options from year to year. Who do I contact about this?
Contact the Business Office 407-469-2561 to change your plan.
Q: Are boarding students required to be vaccinated against COVID-19?
Yes, beginning in August of 2022, all boarding students at Montverde Academy must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 including the vaccine booster shot before living in residence in a Montverde Academy dormitory.
