The Application Process
Complete A Student Application

The online application is open for kindergarten through eleventh grade.  Click on the button below to access our online student enrollment web page.  For students entering grades 10-11, we require transcripts to ensure students will be able to fulfill our graduation requirements.

Take a Placement Test

Placement testing is required of all applicants for grades 1-11.  This test determines grade and group placement in the school’s ability level groups for reading, writing, and math.  Families that complete testing within two weeks of the lottery or submittal of an application (if submitted after the lottery has been run) will be given priority placement over families who have not completed testing, regardless of their spot on the waitlist.

Enrollment Confirmation

Once your child has accepted placement, we will notify you of the steps in the registration process.
