  • There is no deadline to apply; admission is rolling and available seats in any particular grade are filled based on the timestamp the Intent to Register form is submitted.
  • If there are more applicants from the catchment area than seats available in any particular grade, then a waitlist is generated for that grade on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Waitlists remain valid for one (1) school year only and are based on the current school year applications.
  • New waitlists are generated every school year. If an applicant on the waitlist is not notified of acceptance, then he/she MUST reapply for the next school year.

Families may also apply in person at the school’s main office. School personnel will assist families with applying through the online portal and any questions regarding the admissions and enrollment process.
