4. APPLY

You must attend an Info Meeting to receive an application. Complete an application form for each student.


5. INTERVIEW

This interview will take place either at the applicant's home or on campus.  During the interview we will discuss the uniqueness of the school's methods and philosophy, build relationship with the interested family, and will have an opportunity to answer any questions the family may have.


6. ACCEPTANCE & TESTING

Receive letter of acceptance, Family Handbook, book lists and uniform requirements. Students complete an admissions test for proposed grade. Placement testing is not required for students entering pre-k, though a readiness screening may be performed.
