Open Enrollment Events
We encourage our interested families to attend an enrollment information session to find out more about our school’s programs and offerings. Attending an information session is also the perfect platform to ask your questions to faculty and staff. Visit our events page to see a list of information sessions being offered.
Applications received during the “Open Enrollment” window will be eligible for the lottery. In the event that the number of applications for any grade exceeds the number of available seats, a random lottery will be held. The lottery results will be posted on this page, and the first round of offers will be extended to all of the applicants selected in the lottery process. An official offer will be extended to the applicants selected in the lottery process via letter, email, or phone call. They will have one week (7 days), starting from their offer date, to either accept or decline the extended offer.
Should an applicant not get selected in the lottery process, they will automatically be placed on the waiting list. As seats become available, applicants on the waiting list will receive offers. Therefore, an applicant that is not selected in the lottery will not receive any formal communication from the school until they are extended an offer via letter, email, or phone call. If you would like to know where your child currently is on the wait list, please email Mr. Polite at firstname.lastname@example.org (Lower Campus); Mr. Shields at email@example.com (Upper Campus).
