Details on School Year Enrollment:

All applications received during the enrollment lottery period will be randomly numbered and placed in a lottery. A new application for enrollment must be made each school year, including families that are presently on a wait list. Currently enrolled and returning families are given priority in placement. After these placements are made, new families are placed. In addition, placements are made in consideration of optimal learning conditions, such as class balance of age, gender, and diversity.  An effort will be made to grant each family’s first choice for class days and times.

Notification of class placement will be given by February 19, 2020.  A non-refundable deposit will be due by February 28, 2020 to hold this placement. This payment will be applied to the May 2021 tuition only. This deposit is non-refundable regardless of child’s attendance.

Applications received after Jan. 31, 2020 will be considered in the order received. Placements will be made for any available openings and a waiting list will be maintained for any future openings. Once offered placement, a non-refundable deposit will be due within 10 business days to hold this placement. This payment will be applied to the May 2021 tuition only. This deposit is non-refundable regardless of child’s attendance.
