Parents schedule an appointment with the Admissions Office to discuss educational and developmental goals for their child(ren) and to tour campus.
Students applying for Early Childhood (Pre-Nursery through Kindergarten) visit our Early Childhood Center classrooms for a short time and are assessed for school-readiness. Students applying to Grades 1 - 8 spend a full day at school; academic skill levels are assessed by a learning specialist at that time.
Parents must complete an application for each child they wish to enroll.
Early Childhood Age Eligibility:
Pre-Nursery: Two years of age by September 1
Nursery: Three years of age by September 1
Pre-Kindergarten: Four years of age by September 1

In addition to our online admissions application, we require a release of student records and confidential teacher recommendations from the child's current school.
