Kindergarten and 1st Grade applicants will go through a Gesell Observation. 2nd – 8th grade applicants will undergo an in-house educational screening, and the applicant and their parents will meet with our Principal. When a seat opens, the Admissions Office will assign the screening dates and times. Please note when applying for the Preschool Program (3 year old class) student must by 3 years of age by June 1st.
Once an applicant has been evaluated and all application components have been received, the applicant will be in the admissions pool.

Once this process is complete we will begin the testing and interview process for 2nd – 8th grade. Acceptances will begin in mid March and will continue throughout the summer.
