Selection Process

Prospective students and their parents often ask what we look for in selecting students for the school. Simply stated, we seek to match a student’s ability and needs with the goals and resources of our school. We actively seek a diverse student body. We aim for a spectrum of capabilities, interests, and personalities. We look for students whose growth we can foster, and who will—in turn—enrich and believe in our school community and its efforts.
