Note: on Form A, you must attach the latest academic report from your child’s preschool, where applicable, the evaluation and progress reports if the child is receiving any type of therapy.

Step 3: Parent interview

All families who have completed Forms A and B and have paid the application fee will be able to continue with this step, which consists of an interview with both parents.The only parents who will not attend an interview are those who currently have children studying at the school.

Admissions process for kindergarten through 11th grade

Steps to apply
