3-year-old Preschool through Grade 12

You have taken the first step by visiting our website. We look forward to learning more about your family and personally working together throughout the admission process.

Applications for admission may be submitted up to one year in advance of the proposed starting date. The admission process for new students begins as early as October for the following school year acceptance. We accept students starting at age 3 for Preschool. Preschool applicants must be 3-years-old before September 1st and must be potty trained.

Admission is based upon a combination of an applicant’s previous academic and discipline record, test scores, written evaluation(s) from a current teacher(s) and a writing sample (grades 2-12). In addition, all applicants are required to spend a visit day (4-year-old Junior Kindergarten-Grade 5) and are strongly encouraged to spend a Shadow Day (Grades 6-12) on campus. During a Visit Day (4-year-old Junior Kindergarten - Grade 5) a personal interview and grade level admissions testing will be administered as part of the acceptance process.

Limited need-based financial aid is available to qualified families in grades K-12.
