Applications must be submitted prior to taking a school tour. The deadline for admission applications is November 1, prior to the requested enrollment year. Due to limited space, applications submitted after November 1, may be placed on a waitlist for a school tour. A non-refundable application fee of $45.00 must accompany the child’s application, unless the cost is prohibitive.
We are deeply committed to economic diversity and Tuition Assistance applications are available here. Tuition Assistance applications are due in January and must include the current year IRS form and wage information (please see the tuition assistance application for IRS form due dates). All information included in the application remains confidential.
School Tours are designed to provide information and answer questions about the school’s philosophy, curriculum and program. Tours are scheduled for December, January and early February, all held in the morning, and are for adult family members only. Applicant families who applied by the November 1, will be contacted in November with tour sign-up information.
Letters of acceptance are mailed the first week of March for our annual September enrollment.
Consideration for admissions is based on the need of the school and not based on the application or tour date. Each year the number of openings varies because the number of children graduating changes as does the number of sibling applications. Priority is given to siblings. Alum are given high priority. Families in the neighborhood are given some priority, but it is not a guarantee for enrollment to live in the neighborhood. Then considerations for acceptance are given for:
• age (each classroom is balanced within the age grouping by older, middle and younger children)
• gender (we try to balance each classroom with equal number of boys and girls)
• aspects of diversity including family structure, economic and racial diversity
Our goal is to have each child see their family reflected in the classroom. All families offer diversity to the school.
