Student Visits and Parent Interviews
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, for the time being, all student visits and parent interviews will be virtual.
After you apply, your family will receive an invitation to join us for an interview. Adults meet with a member of our admissions team while your child spends time in a classroom for a student visit.
Parent interviews last about 30-45 minutes. Student visits vary in length depending on the age of the applicant:
- 30 minutes for preprimary (3 years through kindergarten);
- a half school day for 1st grade (1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.); and
- a full school day (8:05 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.) for 2nd-8th grades.

Due to Coronavirus Pandemic, Classroom Observations are currently on hold.
We encourage all applicant families to schedule a 30-minute classroom observation, which can be scheduled on school days from November 1 to May 15.
Please note that admissions decisions cannot be made until all requested documents are submitted and your family has completed both a student visit and a parent interview.
