Complete an inquiry/request information form. Upon submission, we will send you information to create an account that will allow you to register for a tour and submit an application. Once your account is set-up, you will be able to select a tour date that will best fit your schedule.

Parent Interview

The parent interview is an informal meeting with the Director of Admissions and Head of School. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know your family and to answer any specific questions you may have after you tour. You will receive available interview dates after your application is processed.
