Admissions

We invite interested parents to have a guided visit to the school with their child. At which time the Director will discuss at length the educational philosophy and responsibilities of being a member of a parent cooperative school. Parents will then complete an application form and submit the application fee. The application fee is non-refundable. In the spring, parents must sign a written contract and submit this with a tuition deposit, which is also non-refundable. Finally, no child can be admitted to the program without a completed medical form from a doctor

It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
