Priority registration is given to:

1.  Children currently enrolled in the Preschool (deadline January 7, 2017)

2.  Siblings of currently enrolled students(deadline January 7, 2017) and

3. Siblings of alumni(deadline January 7, 2017)

After in-house registration is complete in early January and we know how many spaces are remaining, we will fill these with applicants who have priority registration in the above order. Then the classes will be filled on a first come first served basis. We strive for a class composition of equal numbers of girls and boys.

All applicants will be notified by mid February whether they are offered a spot for the upcoming school year or placed on the waitlist. Applicants for “Early Entry” will be notified by early December (of the the school year applying for) if there are any spots remaining.
