Summer Admissions

Published On: June 16th, 2024 | Categories: Food for Thought, In The Classroom |


We continue to work with families throughout the summer for admissions to enroll for the 2024-25 school year. We have waitlists in a number of grade levels, so we encourage you to call to find out if there are seats available in your child’s grade. Summer admissions are made on a rolling basis where seats are available. The process for admissions at this time of the year is outlined below for your convenience.

Please know that our admissions team is on hand to assist you with any questions and look forward to partnering with you on this journey. Contact the Office of Admissions at 540.837.1009.
