2019-20 New Student Application Process

2019-20 Wait List Pool

The 2019-20 school year is now underway and there are currently no available spaces in any grades at this time. If you would like to have your child's application for enrollment be included in our current 2019-20 New Applicant Wait List Pool should a space become available for the 2019-20 school year, please follow the steps below. 


If you are seeking enrollment for the 2020-21 school year, please proceed to the 2020-21 New Applicant information here.

Step 1: Application

For admission in the 2019-2020 school year, complete and submit the 2019-20 New Student Application form and all required documentation as outlined in the 2019-20 New Student Application Checklist below. Once complete, your child's application package will be added to our 2019-20 Wait List Pool.

Step 2: Offer of Admission

If a space becomes available in your child's grade during this school year, the Admissions Committee will review every application in the 2019-20 Wait List Pool for that grade. The Committee may contact potential student's previous school(s) for further information, and it may schedule a meeting or school tour with you and the student applicant at its discretion and depending on several factors, such as grade applied for, availability of staff and time of year. If accepted, the Admissions Committee will make an Offer of Admission to you as soon as possible.
