Admissions Procedures


Typically the parent contacts the school for information about the admissions process. Information is exchanged and parents are invited to an Open House.


These events are scheduled for the second Wednesday of each month, beginning in October, are given a tour of the school, written information about the program, and applications are available. The Director presents an overview of the program and there is a question and answer period. Open House Registration.


Upon receipt of an application, the parents are scheduled to visit the school with their child. This is an opportunity for parents to see the program in operation, the purpose of the visit is not to evaluate the child. This is another opportunity for you to get to know us. Visits typically last 30 minutes.
