A family interview with the principal or director will be scheduled after testing is complete. We request that both parents attend the interview, as well as students applying to 4th through 12th grade.

An official acceptance (or non-acceptance) letter will be mailed within two weeks of the family interview.

Upon the student's acceptance to the school, parents will receive an enrollment agreement via email. The enrollment agreement must be completed online within 10 days of acceptance to the school for the student to be enrolled.
