Demand for space in the pre-primary programs (Early Childhood through Pre-Kindergarten/Montessori) is often greater than the capacity we can accommodate for new applicants. Families applying for children to these programs will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year until programs have reached maximum capacity. Should space remain in the Early Childhood program after the start of school, applicants will be reviewed for admission according to application timing, affiliation to the school, and birth date. Children cannot be admitted to the Early Childhood program prior to turning 18 months of age.

Families may apply for tuition assistance consideration during Regular Decision. Awards will be made on a rolling basis and as long as funds remain available.
