Not all admissions are straightforward and on some occasions acceptance is contingent upon other factors. Sometimes special circumstances apply. This can happen if the teacher requests that the applying family complete previously agreed upon obligations before attendance. Typically such requests involve further study, tutoring or, on rare occasions, support from other professionals. This is typically discussed when you meet with your teacher or with the Director.

With your Acceptance Letter you will receive an Enrollment Package. It will contain all the necessary paperwork and information required to enroll your child.
