How to Apply (Kindergarten - 8th Grade)

Children applying for kindergarten must be five years old on or before September 1. Acceptance into kindergarten is dependent upon a developmental-readiness screening and a family interview. A non-refundable application fee of $150 per student and an original birth certificate must be submitted with the completed application.

For students in 1st–8th grade entry requires a review of the applicant’s records, an interview, and a screening along with the completed application and $150 non-refundable fee.
