Admissions Process

The admissions process begins in the fall one year before the projected school year of entry (Fall 2020 for the 2021-22 school year).

If you are interested in a school year past 2021-22, please complete an inquiry form and we will add you to our mailing list for future admission notifications.

Students seeking admission at this level are encouraged to spend a morning or an entire day visiting our classes.
