Admission assessment and school day visits are scheduled by the Admission Office according to the grade level the student will be entering. Appointments are scheduled upon receipt of an application.

    • PreK 3: Our three-year-old program is a developmental play program and requires no admission evaluation for entry. As PreK 3 students move to PreK 4, they will participate in the same assessment process required for admission to the PreK 4 program.
