Parents of children who will be attending preschool should plan on visiting without their child. Older children are encouraged to spend a day or a half-day at the school. Parents may tour the facility and visit with a school administrator during the student visit or at another time.

The Head of School and Admissions Committee will review the application following the family visit and may request additional information at that time.

Admissions decisions are mailed in early April and on a rolling basis thereafter.


If your child is accepted, a non-refundable deposit of $1000 ($750 Montessori) is required within 30 days of the student’s written or verbal acceptance. All deposits must be accompanied by a signed enrollment contract reserving the student’s seat and guaranteeing payment for the entire year’s tuition.

Returning Students

Re-enrollment decisions for students currently enrolled are made in late winter of each year, prior to the admission of new students. Families will be offered a new enrollment contract for the upcoming year, which must be returned within 30 days of the written offer of re-enrollment.
