Middle School Application Process for 2022-2023

Admission to our Middle School is possible only if there is attrition. We are happy to accept applications and process supplementary materials for your child in case a space arises. We will schedule interviews on a case-by-case basis if that happens. Please follow the steps below to complete the process.

The session will follow a webinar format and will be an opportunity to learn about our school’s philosophy, program and community.
