Enrollment Information
  • We accept applications year round for grades 9–12. Once your application is complete, we will add the student to our waitlist. As seats become available, we will select students to register for the next semester (fall and spring) from the waitlist in the order that the applications were received. 
  • We enroll K–8 students year round. Our busiest enrollment period is during the summer months. Once we have filled all of our seats, we place students on a waitlist. We will make calls to waitlisted families as spots become available. Open enrollment for the new academic year begins on May 1.
