Admissions Calendar

Applying for 2021-2022.

Anticipated fall admissions dates for the 2021-2022 school year. 

We hope and plan to be back on our school building for in-person, physically-distanced learning this fall (learn more here), but to best support our community's health and the health of our applying families, all admissions activities will be conducted via online platforms. We are excited about the opportunities this will provide us to best meet your scheduling needs and to offer some new and different ways for prospective families to get to know Town! 

We are still accepting applications for a few spots for fall 2020, click here to apply, and feel welcome to contact us with any questions. 

We know that life doesn't always happen on schedule.

If your family may be applying outside the traditional Admissions season dates due to relocation or other big life changes, we are happy to work with you. 

Start your 2021-2022 process now!

Fill out our brief Inquiry Form, to be included in our applying families newsletters, and to schedule an informal conversation with our Admissions Director, Debbie Ashe.
