Admissions Process and Priorities
Preschool - 8th grade applications for the coming school year are available each year starting November 1st. For those applying for Kindergarten we invite all students who have applied to our Kindergarten Round-up in late February or early March. Transferring students who apply for admission are asked to Shadow Visit for a half day or full day or come in for an assessment before they are accepted for admission. Preschoolers are accepted on a first come basis until a class is full; your Admission Application and registration fee is all that is needed for acceptance.
Registration for accepted students for the upcoming year is held each spring. There is a non-refundable registration fee, which guarantees the student a place in the class.
