Admission Process

We seek capable, motivated children who bring a variety of talents, interests, and backgrounds; we seek parents who embrace our values and are committed to working in partnership with the school. Through our admission process, we seek to enrich our school community with families of different races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and economic backgrounds.

During the admission process, we value the opportunity to get to know you and your child. In turn, we encourage you to get to know our community. We hope to see you on campus!
