The procedure and the required supplementary materials are as follows:

  • Release for Cumulative File

3. Parents complete online enrollment forms.
Families who anticipate needing financial aid, should begin the online FACTS assessment and complete it as soon as possible.

4. New students entering kindergarten through eighth grade will be tested. The Principal will schedule a testing date for your child. There is a testing fee of $50.00 (non-refundable) and is due at the time of testing.

5. After steps 1-4 have been completed and received, the application will be referred to the Admissions Committee for review.

6. The Principal will notify the family of testing results by phone.

7. Formal denial and acceptance letters are mailed based on Admissions Committee decisions.
