ADMISSION CALENDAR

There are several stages to finding the right school for your child. We understand that it begins with researching and discovering schools on your own on the internet and through people you know. When you're ready to take the next step, schedule a virtual visit (due to COVID-19), and we will answer all of your questions! See our 40 acre campus and the school day in action. We're looking forward to meeting you!

SCHEDULE A VIRTUAL TOUR

EARLY CHILDHOOD
(6 weeks - 2 years and 11 months old)

Virtual tours for our Infant and Toddler program take place with a small group of families at a time. We keep the number of participants low for each tour to ensure quality time can be spent answering each family's questions well. Each tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours to include time for questions at the end.

FOR A PRESCHOOL - GRADE 8 VIRTUAL TOUR:

To learn more about our program, see campus virtually, and ask questions, reach out to us and schedule a personal tour.
