Your admissions file is begun once we receive your Online Application and application fee. For each individual student, we require the following important forms and documents on or before the family interview:

  • Copy of the Birth Certificate
    (Pre-K applicants must be 4 years old and Kindergarten applicants must be 5 years old by Sept. 1)

3. Complete the Academic Evaluation

Once we receive the application, you will be contacted in order to schedule a testing appointment for each student. All students are required to take an academic assessment administered by either the Grammar or Upper School Principal. This screening is to deternine the student's academic and behavioral preparedness for our rigorous curriculum. Testing time takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the grade level.

4. Attend the Family Interview

The family or parent interview is the final and most crucial part of our application process. After admisisons testing has been reviewed, the Admissions Office will extend invitaions for the parent interview. This is the time for us to get to know one another better and a time for you to ask questions. We want nothing more than success for each and every student and we believe a partnership between school and parents is the best path to success.  Students typically do not attend the interview and we understand when other arrangements cannot be made.

5. Enroll Online

All admissions decisions are communicated via email once the Family Interview is complete.  Once the Admission Committee makes a decision, you will be notified in writing via email regarding your child's admissions status.  Enrollment is completed and fees are paid electronically via our Online Enrollment process through the FACTS Family Portal.  Please note the following: 

  • Classroom placement is not reserved until the enrollment fee has been paid.
  • All enrollment fees are non-refundable and must be paid upon completion of each enrollment.
  • If you enroll for a class that is currently full, your student will be placed in our waiting pool.
