Application Process

Thank you for your interest in our school! Our application process is designed to help you choose the best educational setting for your child. Our school values the relationships we have with our families and our ability to meet a child’s learning needs. We want you learn as much as you can about our school.

After reading about our school and the Education for Life philosophy, we invite you to call our school office or email to schedule a school tour. We welcome both you and your child to a tour of our school and a brief visit to the potential classroom setting.

Next, we ask that you send in an Application for Admission with a non-refundable fee. After reviewing the application, we will arrange a day for the child to visit the school and participate in activities, unless the child has accompanied the parent on the first visit and the school staff has already indicated acceptance.
