Application Process

Our application process ensures that our school is the right fit for your child.

  • Complete an Inquiry Form to tell us a little about yourself and to let us know you are interested in learning more. We will give you a call right away to get the process started while answering any initial questions you may have about the school’s philosophy, students, teachers, programs and logistics.
  • Schedule a Campus Tour to visit our school facilities. Meet with our Director of Admissions, school leaders and teachers while seeing the program in action. To arrange for a Campus Tour submit an Inquiry Form.
  • Applicants for grades K-8 are required to participate in a Shadow Day as part of the admissions process. The Shadow Day includes a full day of classes for current K-8th Grades and a 1/2 day for Prek and incoming K. These allow the child, family and school to determine whether it is a good fit.
  • Pre K applicants will be issued conditional acceptances within the school’s Early and Regular Action timelines if it is not possible to conduct a Shadow Day yet because of age and/or readiness. Students entering Pre K will need to conduct a Shadow Day when they are ready before being officially accepted by the school. Should an applicant not be accepted after a deposit has been made, then the deposit will be refunded 100%.
  • A Shadow Day can be completed on the same day as the Campus Tour. Medical and Emergency and Shadow Day Waiver forms must be submitted before a Shadow Day can be scheduled.

We conduct a final check in with the student and family to ensure we have answered all of your questions and the fit is a good one for both parties. Ideally, this final step happens at the family’s home, though it can also be completed via phone or Skype.

New this year, priority enrollment for new families.

We are offering a new opportunity to secure your spot in our growing school using a refundable reservation. If you are applying for Regular Action by February 8, 2017, you can reserve a spot in our Priority Enrollment applicant pool by making a refundable reservation today to ensure consideration first in our applicant pool for Regular Action.
