Yes. When applying, students in grades 1 through 8 must present a copy of the last report card and a form to release information from the previous school attended. The principal will interview new students entering grades 6 to 8. All students will be accepted for a probation period if they are in good standing with the transferring school.
In addition to tuition, what other investment costs should I include in my budget?admin2022-07-24T16:54:41-05:00
Many fees (such as our Home and School Association fees for activities) are included in the tuition. These fees are billed separately from tuition.
New Student Enrollment fee:
To reserve your child’s place in our school, there is a nonrefundable registration/curriculum fee of $300 for Preschool students ($100 of this fee is applied to your tuition) and $400 for students in K-8 (these fees are applied toward one child’s book/supply/technology fee).
Annual Re-Enrollment fee:
Each spring, current school families pay a nonrefundable $400 re-enrollment fee to hold their child’s place in the school for the upcoming academic year. For children entering our preschool, $100 of this fee will be applied to your tuition. For students entering grades K-8, these fees are applied toward one child’s book/supply/technology fee. All fees must be paid before school starts.
A healthy no-mess snack is recommended. The preschool is a nut-free environment. The kindergarten and grades 1-8 are nut-free at the discretion of the teacher. You will be informed at the beginning of the year, if your child’s classroom is a nut-free environment. This would be the case if a child with nut allergies is in the classroom.
