  • Step 1: We encourage you to attend one of our Open Houses. This will allow you to ask questions about our school as well as get to know the administration team and other parents. We ask that middle school and high school students attend the Open House with their parents so their questions are addressed as well, please leave younger children at home if possible.
  • Step 2: To apply, complete the application for your grade. Please note there is a $50 application fee required when the application is submitted.
  • Step 3:  For grade 1 and above we request teacher evaluation forms & transcripts from students’ current teacher(s) and school. Those forms will be sent directly to teachers/schools.

  • Step 4: Students being admitted will receive an acceptance email, as well as an enrollment packet that includes a link to pay the deposit to reserve your student’s spot in the coming year’s class.
