How to Apply

Our admissions process is designed to begin building a close working relationship with families. This relationship begins with the prospective parents making an appointment to meet with an Admissions staff member to talk about your family’s goals and to take a tour of the school. It is often easier if the first meeting is for adults only, though if that is not an option, children are welcome to join. After the initial meeting, parents can also choose to schedule a time to bring their child in to spend time in a classroom. The purpose of these meetings is to:

• Introduce families to our programs, philosophy and policies.
• Answer questions and concerns.
• Allow the staff to learn about your child, your family and your educational goals.
• Match your child and family with a classroom.

Once these visits are completed and the application form and fees have been received a family will be considered for enrollment.
