We accept students based on the belief that we can adequately meet their spiritual, social, and academic needs. All families are encouraged to participate in school programs and activities.

We have a two-step application process:

  • Request a guided tour of the school and interview for you and your child.
  • Complete the registration packet and return it with a non-refundable placement fee of $300.00, a copy of the child's birth certificate, and the child's most recent physical and immunization schedule from your doctor's office.
