Early Childhood

Preschool circle time

Application Process

We are currently completely enrolled in our preschools and kindergartens for the 2017/18 school year but a family can complete an application to be in the wait pool.

  • We have recently changed our enrollment process for our preschools and kindergartens due to the volume of applicants. Applications for the 2018/19 school year will be accepted starting October 16, 2017 through January 15, 2018.  Group interview/playdates begin near the end of February. If you have any questions please call Becky Brownlie, our Enrollment Coordinator

  • Submit a completed Application for Admission form and $50 application fee to the Enrollment Coordinator.  A portion of our budget is dedicated to providing financial assistance in the form of a tuition reduction for K – 8 students. There is no financial assistance for our preschool programs. We use a third party organization to help us administer our need-based financial aid awards. Financial Aid information and forms can be found here.

  • Applicants to our Early Childhood programs will be contacted for a small group playdate interview or individual interview.

  • Applicants for our grades classrooms will be contacted by the teacher to arrange an interview and short assessment. During the school year there is also an opportunity for a three day classroom visit.  Our process is designed to assist the parents and the faculty in the placement decision.
