Submit an Application

We offer a convenient online application process.

Complete our online application form along with a non-refundable $210 application fee. Upon completion of the application, you will be added to our pending enrollment or waiting list. Admissions will contact you to let you know the status of your application.

Schedule Visits and Recommendations

We believe in investing time in getting to know our future families!

Prior to acceptance, the school may request a student visit with a teacher or administrator to learn more about your child. Families may also be asked to provide a recommendation from former teachers. We also invite families to learn more about our needs-based financial aid to help with tuition costs.

Complete Enrollment

All enrollment contracts and paperwork will be conveniently processed digitally.

Once a space is available, we will send an acceptance email to the family along with a digital enrollment contract and other necessary paperwork. A non-refundable deposit will also be due at the same time as the contract. The acceptance email will provide families with a start date, classroom placement, and other important details.
