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.
The admissions process begins with an evening open house on January 16th at 7PM, which presents our faculty and program to interested parents and adults. In late January, we invite families to a second open house on Sunday, January 27th at 3PM. This is a less structured opportunity for parents and children to tour the school, visit with faculty members, and participate in activities designed to acquaint children with our program. Optional for interested parents: Call the school to schedule a tour of the school, which includes the opportunity to visit classes.
Prospective students are asked to spend a full day visiting the school as part of the application process, usually during January or February. Please call the school office to schedule a visit day for your child.
We do not require any special testing as part of the admissions process. Forms are available in PDF form at right for download, or you may pick up a paper copy in the school office.
