Admissions Process

Applications for Fall 2019 Application Process

Open Enrollment December 10, 2018 – February 28, 2019




If you missed the Open Enrollment deadline of February 28, 2019, no worries!  You may still apply online.  Submission after open enrollment simply means that your student's application will be placed on the waiting list in the order the application is receive behind all those who were eligible to participate in the lottery for enrollment.  If a space becomes available for your child, and you were not able to attend one of our offered Information Meetings and Open Houses, we will contact you to schedule.  In the meantime, our tours (Open Houses) and Information Meetings for Fall 2019 are complete. 


Post-Open Enrollment application process:
  1. Apply online. 1 application per child, per school.
  2. The application is date and time stamped and placed on a waiting list in the order received behind those who participated in the lottery.
  3. If a space opens up for your child, we will contact you to discuss next steps.
    • Current wait lists for each campus are posted on the "Lottery Results" page.
    • These wait lists do not include applications received after Feb. 28, 2019.
    • Post Open Enrollment applicants will know if a campus is starting to offer to those that applied after Feb.  28th if when reviewing the lottery results, all the numbers in a particular grade level are highlighted in yellow.  That would signify that offers were made to every applicant who participated in the lottery for that grade level, and the school will start offering to post-Open Enrollment applicants.



The process below does not apply to our post-open enrollment applications.
