In many cases, testing can be completed during the same visit as the admissions interview.
STEP 4: ADMISSIONS INTERVIEW
Once the application is submitted and required documents are obtained, families will be scheduled for a face-to-face interview with our Head of School. This is an opportunity for the family to ask questions about our school and processes as well as a chance for our Head of School to share expectations of our families. We are your families partner in education and want to ensure that you have all the information you need to determine the best place to enroll your child(ren).
Students entering grades 9-12 will also have a brief interview with the Head of School.

Upon completion of the interview, families will be notified in writing of the admissions decision. Students will receive a formal notification of admission.
At that time, families will be emailed a link to complete the enrollment process. Admitted students and families are also eligible to submit an application for tuition assistance at this time.
