The Admissions Process

There are typically more eligible applicants than space available, so the School holds a random public lottery.

Those students not selected will be placed on a waiting list in accordance with the lottery. Students on the waiting list will be considered if a space becomes available. Please keep in mind that due to limited space, admission cannot be guaranteed.

Please note that if a waitlisted applicant is not admitted for the academic year they applied for, they will be required to resubmit a new application in order to be considered for the following year.

All 7th, 8th, and 9th grade applicants will initially go to a waitlist. Families will be notified as spots become available. Space in these grades is not guaranteed.
