Waitlist Information

* The number of applications received by 5:00 PM (ET) on Thursday, March 15, 2018 did not exceed the total number of seats available by grade and/or the entire school. As a result, a lottery will not be required to determine initial seat offers.

Virtual Information Session

The parent and/or legal guardian of every student enrolling in our program is strongly encouraged to attend a Virtual Information Session as part of the enrollment process. These sessions are intended to ensure that families fully understand the instructional model and expectations of the student, parents and school, as well as identify each student's individual needs before the first day of school. A complete schedule and how to access these sessions will be provided during the enrollment process.
