How to Apply

Our tours for the 2024-25 school year will be held in January and February 2024. Registration is available now!

Rolling admissions: Following our priority admissions season (after February 2024), we continue to accept applications all year round. Any openings will be filled from our pool of applicants on the basis of maintaining balanced and diverse classroom populations. We will contact you directly if we have an opening for your child.

If you previously applied for the 2023-24 school year and we were unable to offer enrollment, you may contact us in January 2024 to have your child’s application held over for the 2024-25 school year.
