  • If we must close by the city or state’s orders leaving us unable to run in September, we will be giving full refunds on your deposit.

Regularly scheduled tours for Fall 2020 have been closed for the year. Please be aware that we enroll by year, not semester. This means we do not take children mid-year. We will resume tours for Fall 2021 beginning in October 2020.

Applications submitted that are not accepted for Fall 2020 will receive priority consideration for Fall 2021 enrollment.
