A: We do have wait lists when necessary. Some grade levels reach full enrollment quickly, so we recommend speaking with our admissions representative.

Q: What is the process for the waitlist?

A: If the grade level you’re interested in has reached its capacity and is currently waitlisted, please complete the waiting list request form available on our website under the Admissions section. You will be contacted when an opening becomes available for the specific grade level your student is waiting for, even if it happens in the middle of the school year.
