Admissions Process

The checklist below is intended to help build our school community in a manner that supports the academic and social growth of all members.  Staff, students, and parents must work together to achieve a positive environment for learning.  Thoughtful enrollment choices on the part of the family and the school will assist in this process.

  1. Fully immunized children between the ages of 18 months and 14 years old are eligible for our programs. See the programs that we offer.
  2. Request Information

  7. Student Visit Days (for Grades 1-8 only)
