The admissions process at Stillwater Christian School is centered upon getting to know students individually and assisting them in fully understanding our school’s mission and vision. The match between student and school is of primary importance. A variety of factors are reviewed during the admissions process, including student and parent responses to our Stillwater application, academic records from current schools, and performance on standardized and individual assessments.

What Makes Stillwater’s Preschool Unique?
- Montessori Philosophy and Structure. Children of multiple ages come together and share a learning environment while still engaging in educational activities that are suited to their individual development and needs.
- Hands-On Learning. We love hands-on learning! Young children learn most effectively when they have the opportunity to explore their environment and experience a variety of materials to stimulate the five senses.
- Christian Character. We seek to love and nurture our youngest students while reinforcing biblical principles. The development of Christian character is emphasized, stressing integrity and self-discipline.
