Admissions 2019 - 2020

Dear Prospective Bella Mente Families,

Thank you for considering (BMA) Bella Mente Academy. We are currently accepting applications for grades K-8.

The school typically has a wait list though we encourage you to apply at any time during the school year. When a space becomes available you will be contacted by our front office staff. If a spot does not open up during the school year you can apply for the lottery during open enrollment which begins January 2nd and closes February 15th.

Each year the lottery is held the first Saturday of March. To be added to the wait list, interested families simply complete the attached application and send by post mail or drop off at the school. Current families interested in enrolling a sibling are required to complete the application.

Families who reside within the Vista Unified School District attendance boundaries receive an extra ticket in the lottery. Those who live within Grapevine elementary’s boundaries receive two additional tickets.

For more information or to schedule a space on one of our weekly tours, please contact the front office at 760-621-8948 or We look forward to you joining the
Bella Mente Community!

Erin Feeley
Executive Director
