Admissions Process
Our admissions process begins by building a relationship with your family and is designed to help us get to know each girl personally. Our goal is to make the process as streamlined as possible while gathering the required information. The Admissions Team is here to guide you through every step of the way with personalized attention. We look forward to working with your family!

Admissions decisions are based upon entrance testing, previous and current school records, personal interviews, and availability of openings. As a convenience to our applicant families, we utilize an electronic notification and enrollment process.
