Preschool

Now Enrolling for 2023/2024!

The Arma Dei preschool provides a high-quality early childhood experience for your child in a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment where children develop and grow using a developmentally-appropriate curriculum. We prepare your child for the more formal learning environment they will encounter in Kindergarten. Our preschool program prepares students for the classical model of education, by encouraging memorization through song and poetry, hands-on exploration, and exposure to rich literature that emphasizes God’s story.

We are actively enrolling for the 2023/2024 school year. Click HERE to begin an online application.

Admissions Procedures

Arma Dei Academy offers three academic programs:

  • Preschool
  • Kindergarten – 11th Grade Academy (full time)
  • Homeschool Collaborative (part-time)

Each program is run separately by a Director who reports to the Principal, having a distinct admissions process independent from the other programs. Acceptance and enrollment into one academic program does not guarantee acceptance and enrollment into another academic program.

Wait Pool 

  • When a preschool class has reached capacity, applicants may request in writing to admissions@armadeiacademy.com to be added to the wait pool for the respective class, so long as the online application has been completed. 
  • A wait pool is for the current (22/23) or upcoming (23/24) academic school year only. * Applications for the 24/25 school year will open in November 2023.

Programs

Learning the Joys of Exploration

Circle time, creative play, song, movement, outdoor activities, and art are all parts of our program, during which students learn and experience joy and wonder. Our teachers set clear expectations, demonstrate abundant grace, and understand the significant transition that takes place as our youngest students begin their journey of learning.
