Enrollment Dates & Information

Enrollment is open for the 2023-2024 school year and we are currently accepting applications. 
Enrollment Process
This will take 10-15 minutes to complete.  Applicants are placed on the wait list in the order that the applications are received.  Parent will be notified about the wait list status and if they are allowed to schedule a shadow morning. 
2.  Complete Shadow Day
We request all potential new students complete several hours of time in the building.  This helps the student see what occurs and be able to shadow a current student.  The Shadow Day usually starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.  
3.  Schedule an Interview.
Parent and student will meet with school staff so that they can more fully understand the program and make sure that the academic rigor is a good fit for the student.    
Tour Interview
Parent and Student are given a personalized tour by one of the Student Ambassadors so that they get a feel for the school.  Information is given and questions may be asked during this time.   Parent and Student are interviewed.  This is a time to get to know the Student more and a time for Parent and Student to ask questions and get the answers they need.
4. Make a decision about attendance within 24 hours after the interview.
