Enrollment Announcements & Applicant Pool Placement

The first enrollment announcements and enrollment agreements for 2020-21 will be mailed by mid-March, 2020. All applicants with completed applications will receive a letter about their applicant status at that time. Parents of students offered enrollment will have ten business days to sign and return the enrollment agreement with the tuition deposit. If an agreement is not returned by the deadline indicated on the contract, the classroom space may be offered to another qualified applicant from the applicant pool. If classroom space does not exist for all appropriate candidates, some may be placed in the applicant pool to be considered when an opening occurs. Enrollment may be offered to an applicant over the summer or during the school year if classroom space is available.
