  • When space is not available, your child’s name will be added to a wait list.
  • Applications are not carried over from year to year. If your family declines a spot for the current year, re-application for the following school year in September is required.

Regularly scheduled tours for Fall 2020 have resumed. Please be aware that we enroll by year, not semester. This means we do not take children mid-year. To register for one of our tours in the upcoming months please register below.
