How to Apply
September: Application Process Opens
Families may begin to submit application items for the 2024-25 school year in early September. We encourage families to prioritize required appointment scheduling, as slots are limited and fill up quickly. Applicants with required appointments scheduled after December 19, 2023 will not be eligible for a January decision release. Families applying for financial aid are encouraged to review the application requirements, begin to gather required information, and reach out to our Financial Aid department at email@example.com with any questions as early as possible.
December: Application Completion Deadline for January Decision Release
In order to receive an admissions and financial aid decision by January 22, 2024, all required application items must be completed by December 19, 2023. Please note the financial aid application (for families applying to Grades PreK and up) is separate from the admissions application, and managed via the FAST website.
January: Decision Release
Applicants who complete all required application items by December 19, 2023 will receive a decision via the admissions portal by January 22, 2024. Decision release for all other completed applications will resume in February and continue on a weekly basis. Please note that in certain grades with high application volume and/or limited capacity, a wait-pool decision could be the best outcome as early as February.
