Admission Decisions

All applications are processed through the Admissions Office and the Admission Committee reviews each applicant’s completed file. Admission decisions are based on several factors, including the classroom visit or observation, intellectual assessment results, confidential teacher recommendations, and space availability.  Ultimately, each decision is based on what is best for the child.
