Step Two  

Parent/guardian visits school (Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday). Tour of the school, short classroom observation and discussion withEnrollment  Director.

Step Three

Parent/guardian  fills out application and returns it  with application fee. Gets teacher recommendation form started and submits records release form to current school.

Step Four

When all the relevant material is in, the Admissions Office will contact parent/guardian to schedule a screening with a Center School teacher and applicant.  Children are assessed for developmental placement, learning style and academic fit.

Step Five

Once the teacher recommendation form is in, the school records are in hand and the screening has been written up, the Admissions Committee meets to make a decision.

The financial aid application, if applicable, should be submitted at the prospective parent’s earliest convenience. Please note that financial aid status is not part of the Admissions Committee’s decision-making.
