Admissions Process

Step 1: Schedule a Tour

The first step towards IMA admission process is an adult-only school tour at the campus of your choice. The tour provides insight of how our immersion Montessori classroom works. We strongly encourage both parents to be on a tour, however only one parent is required. To sign up for a 30-minute tour, please register online through the Ravenna admissions portal. Ravenna is a web-based admission system that allows you to apply to apply to PS-12 private schools.

Our Capitol Hill campus is currently under construction in preparation to launch February 2018, in the meantime we invite you to tour our West Bellevue Campus.

Tour Dates:

Thu  02/01/2018 9:30- 10 am - Tour @ Eastgate Campus

Thu  02/01/2018 10:15 am - Tour @ Eastgate Campus


Step 2: Complete Application

IMA is accepting applications to our applicant pool for all three campuses. 

Step 3: Complete Child Questionnaire (Toddler & Primary)

This questionnaire form is required and should be completed by a parent/guardian. This form gives you an opportunity to tell us more about your family, your child’s learning environment at home, as well as how your child learns best. One or two sentences are sufficient and you may write in Chinese, Japanese, or Spanish.

Step 4: Submission of Grade reports (Elementary Only)


Please provide a copy of your child's most recent report card.

If your current school has an account Ravenna and uses Ravenna’s repository services, they will see a list of all current students applying out. In order for your applicant's name to appear on that list (allowing schools to send files on your applicant's behalf), you must indicate "yes" in the question mentioned above as well as have paid and submitted your application to the school(s) in which you are applying to.

A school that is not the current school can still upload student records to Ravenna via their repository account. In this case, the school will upload the records to their repository clearinghouse.

Ravenna provides complimentary repository accounts for schools to upload application related materials, such as report cards and transcript. Records uploaded directly to Ravenna via the repository account are processed within 24-48 hours.


Step 5: Full-Day Student Visit (Elementary Only)- 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.

A school visit is required for all Elementary aged students (1st-5th Grade). This will be an all-day visit from 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. to allow prospective students to engage with our learning community. *Lunch and Snacks will be provided. Students will not be asked to complete any type of academic testing during his/her visit.

Please sign up for a full-day visit online through Ravenna. Ravenna is a web-based admission system that allows you to apply to apply to PS-12 private schools. Please visit Ravenna to explore our admissions process, complete an application, and/or sign-up for a tour.
