We understand that finding the right school for your child is a highly significant and meaningful decision.

Children grow and change each year, encountering new experiences, stepping up to new obligations, and reaching new milestones. Recognizing this growth and being aware of these changes are essential considerations in school choice. Our collective responsibility, yours and ours, is to understand your child’s individual development, needs, and abilities in order to find the school setting where they can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

Our admission process is designed to help us get to know each other. From your initial inquiry through your application for admission, we work as partners with you. We strive to illustrate what distinguishes our program and our community, and we hope to gain a solid understanding of what is important to you and to your child.

We carefully consider what information and materials will be most appropriate and helpful in providing us with an accurate profile of where your child is in their own, unique educational journey. While your online application and admission materials are both informative and essential, we want you to know that the most valuable (and joyful) part of this process for us is the opportunity to spend time with your child. Whether an Early School playgroup, a Lower School group admission visit, or the days our Middle and Upper School applicants spend visiting classes, nothing provides us with a fuller or more meaningful understanding of each applicant.

We are truly excited about our work together. Let’s get started!

Timeline for 2019-2020

You’ll note that we publish application deadlines for each unit as well as the common notification dates for our first round of admission decisions. However, we certainly understand that family plans can change at any time throughout the year. We are happy to accept applications beyond the stated deadlines and will contact you to explain any changes in the admission process for our later applicants.
