We continue to accept applications for the current school year on a rolling basis for any spaces that may still be available or become available mid-year. Please contact the Admission Office to inquire about the availability of spaces in the grade(s) to which you seek entry.
Applications for the current school year will be processed through Ravenna where you will be asked to create an account (if you registered for an event prior to October 7, the system will recognize you if you use the same email address). Only one account per family may be created; you may enter multiple children under one account. Parents/guardians will need to share login credentials.
Please make sure to select "Applying for the fall of 2021" at the top of the first page or you will not be able to proceed. You will find step-by-step instructions and links to all required forms in the Ravenna portal. (Disregard the deadlines listed and complete all requirements as soon a possible for a mid-year entry.)
