Step 1 – Complete an Enrollment Inquiry to Begin Application Process

Complete an Enrollment Inquiry and submit any appropriate forms and return to the Admissions Coordinator. Please include copies of your child(ren)’s birth certificate(s) and, for children applying to grades 1 -12, report card(s) for the past two years.

Preschool, Kindergarten and first grade have age limits as follows:
Preschool:  Age 3 by June 1
Kindergarten: Age 5 by December 31
First grade: Age 6 by June 1

Step 2 – Interview and Class Visit

Upon receipt, the Admissions Coordinator will forward the application to the appropriate teacher(s) and will contact you to schedule an interview with you and your child(ren). This interview is to assess both the school’s ability to meet the needs of your child and the level of fit for you and your family with our educational approach and curriculum, as well as to provide an opportunity for you to ask questions. Although not required, we recommend that students also visit the class for one to three days after the interview.

A non-refundable Admission Fee of $200 per student ($350 for international students) is required for all new applicants and is due at the time of the interview/class visit once space in class has been determined.

Step 3 – Tuition Arrangements

Once acceptance is confirmed, the Admissions Coordinator will schedule an appointment with you to complete admission requirements, sign a Tuition Agreement and to arrange payments. Tuition is due by May 1. Find Tuition Schedules here.

There are two options for tuition payment:

  1. Full payment in advance. Required for international students. Optional for residents, with discount available. *Link to Terms & Payment Requirements
  2. 12 monthly payments (May-April) via automatic debits from your bank account.

The Tuition Agreement must be signed and financial arrangements made prior to your child(ren) attending class.
