Do you have admissions testing?

Testing scores are just one of the items we evaluate as part of our application process to assist us in determining grade placement. We will test students that do not have recent standardized testing scores available. We also do a screening for Pre-K, kindergarten, and 1st grade applicants to verify that they are developmentally ready to begin a full-day program.

When is your open enrollment period?

Open enrollment for the next school year will begin in early November of the current year for early childhood/elementary students (PK-4) and February 1 for Intermediate Elementary and above students.
