Dear Parents,

MTA 2021 – 22 Online Student Enrollment User Guide:

Who can Register

  • Returning students of MTA from Academic Year 2020-2021.
  • New students: Children who turned four years old on or before September 1, 2021.

What is new for 2021-22 Registration:

  • Change to the registration fees.

MTA has two branches:

  • Montgomery County
  • Frederick County

Please choose the branch, which is convenient for you, when you register your child(ren).  We are planning to conduct classes online until November 2021 for the school year 2021-22. We will reconsider the option for in-person classes in November 2021 by assessing the situation, based on the facility availability and county restrictions at that time.
