A $50 non-refundable application fee is required with the Application Form.  Additionally, a $500 deposit is required to hold a spot for your child The $500 deposit is applied toward the last month's tuition.  It will be refunded if we are unable to accommodate your child.

A teacher must meet with your child before acceptance to the school.  These meetings are scheduled at the end of the school day (approximately between 2:15 - 3:00 p.m., depending on the age of the child.)  Children entering elementary (grades 1-6) need to visit the school for a half-day. (If enrolling in the summer, we will call you to meet with the teacher prior to starting school.)
