Admission: Nursery - Grade 8

To ensure the success of our future students, we get to know every family. That personal connection starts with a visit to our campus for an open house or parent tour. As an applicant family, you will also meet with a teacher to talk about your child and our teaching in the classroom. The application process is a series of simple steps (age-specific) from September until January. We are here to help every step of the way.
