Q: Do you have wait lists? What is the process if we are on the wait list?
A: We do have wait lists when necessary. Some grade levels reach full enrollment quickly, so we recommend speaking with our admissions representative.
Q: What is the process for wait list?
A: You will be informed that you are on a wait list. You will be contacted when an appropriate opening occurs for the specific grade level your student is wait listed for, which could occur mid-year. At the time you are contacted, you may choose to enroll your child or pass on the opportunity and remove your name from the wait list and re-apply for the next school year.
Q: Do you accept scholarships?
