Admission Process and Information for New Applicants:
We welcome you to begin our admission process by applying via our "apply online" link. At this time we are not scheduling visits to campus due to our school being closed with distance learning through April 13.
Any student visits prior to acceptance will be scheduled when we move back to on-site classes.
Preschool 3 to 9th grade applicants: Classroom visits and testing and assessments are scheduled with the Admissions Director for families applying to Preschool 3 through 9th grade. Families will meet with the Headmaster prior to final acceptance.
Preschool 3 and Pre-K 4 - After the application is submitted, children will meet with the classroom teacher for a basic knowledge assessment. This visit allows the teacher to get to know each child on a more personal level.
Kindergarten and First grade - Once the application is submitted, a classroom visit will be scheduled. The teachers will work one-one-one with each child during that visit to assess reading and math skills, motor skills, and following directions. Meeting the teacher in the classroom helps the children to feel comfortable in an unfamiliar environment. The visit is scheduled with the admission office.
Second through Fourth grade - Applicants visit the classroom for a day after the application is submitted. The visit day includes an assessment by the teacher in reading and math. Spending a day in the classroom also gives each child the opportunity to see first-hand what the classroom environment is like, and to meet current students who will be in the class. This visit is scheduled with the admission office.
Fifth through Ninth grade - Applicants are required to take the Independent Schools Entrance Exam (ISEE). Parents must register online with ISEE and may take the exam at any location offering the ISEE. To learn more visit the following link for information and testing locations. ISEE Information. Students entering 6th-8th and high school will also take the Saxon Math placement test.
