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, 2019.  A non-refundable deposit will be due by February 25, 2019 to hold this placement. This payment will be applied to the May 2020 tuition only. This deposit is non-refundable regardless of child’s attendance.

Applications received after Feb. 1, 2019 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.
