Admissions Interview

Kindergarten & Grades 1-8

Interview: Upon approval of your application, we will contact you to arrange an Admissions Interview. In this interview, you and your child will meet with one or more of our faculty members, to assess whether there is a good fit between your child and the school.

3 Day Trial: New Grade School children will then be invited to spend three school days in their prospective class.  We do not do class visits for children entering Kindergarten during the pandemic. All new admissions to the school are on a 6-week conditional contract. In-person family meetings are available once we receive an application. Upon a successful class visit, an acceptance package will be sent.
