Admission Process

Complete the Admissions Application in full through our admissions portal on SchoolAdminOnline and submit along with payment of the non-refundable $150 application fee.

When we receive the completed application, you will be invited to a virtual parent interview. We ask that both parents (where appropriate) be present for this meeting. The interview offers you an opportunity to ask questions about our school program, and allows us to learn more about your child and your family.

 

If you are applying to Kindergarten:

  • Applicants to Kindergarten must be five years old on or before September 1, 2022.
  • Applications are due Friday, January 7, 2022.
  • Kindergarten applications for Mann and University families are due no later than Friday, December 3, 2021.
