What is the deadline for submitting an application?

If you are a current family and are applying for a younger sibling the deadline for your application is November 1st.  The deadline for all other applicants is December 1st. The application form, application fee ($225), and all related materials and documents should be completed and returned as soon as possible. Screenings and play dates for Pre K and Kindergarten applicants are scheduled in the order in which we receive applications.  In order to ensure that a screening can be arranged prior to the first round of decisions, families are encouraged to apply according to the deadlines. You may still send in the forms after the deadline for our rolling admissions, which is based upon availability. However, screenings are scheduled only when a potential seat becomes available.
