Our school operates from the day after Labor Day in September to the end of May or first week of June. We are closed during the summer but still give tours of the school for the new school year.

To enroll for the Fall of each year, please contact the school to arrange a tour prior to the last Wednesday in April. The last Wednesday in April is our Annual Open House and Enrollment Day from 9-12. To enroll for the next new school year you would come to the open house, pay the registration/special events fee of $120 to hold your spot and receive the enrollment paperwork. This paperwork needs to be back to us by the first of August.

Legacy families, those currently enrolled and those who have been enrolled in the past, have priority enrollment from the first of April to the last Wednesday of April.

After the Open House we accept new students as availability allows. In the case of limited spots for enrollment, we maintain a waiting list in order of contact.
