#5 Final Steps

#1 Inquire | Complete an Inquiry Form

Complete an Inquiry Form to tell us a little about yourself and to let us know you are interested in learning more. We will schedule an initial 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.

#2 Visit | Take a Campus Tour

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.

#3 Apply | Submit an Initial Application

After we’ve received your initial inquiry form, you will be given access to our admissions system. Within that system, you will complete an application. We do not charge an application fee. Once that application has been received, we will follow up to schedule a shadow day. If you are applying for Early or Regular action rounds we encourage you to submit a refundable deposit at this stage.

#4 Shadow Classes | Complete a Shadow Day

Applicants for grades K-12 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-12th Grades and a 1/2 day for Pre-K 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. Contact us if you would like to make this special arrangement.

#5 Final Steps | Complete Final Documents

Your final steps are to submit the final paperwork, which includes teacher reference forms, transcript, standardized testing results, report cards, and a FLEX Tuition application (if applicable). All of these forms are accessible through our admissions system, which you will be granted access to after you’ve completed an initial inquiry form. Once we have all of the information we need, 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.
