  • Complete our Inquiry Form and schedule a date for your student(s) to shadow, meet teachers, and work with our admissions team.
  • Schedule a time for your child(ren) to be assessed for program readiness. All students who are applying for kindergarten will be assessed for readiness.  We do consider students with birthdays after October 1 on a case-by-case basis. 
  • Complete an Application and request for transfer of records. A copy of the child’s birth certificate, current immunization records, and other school- or state-mandated documents will be required prior to enrollment.
