  3. Step 3: Application Review and Decision Notification

    The Co-Principals will review your application, and the decision will be sent to you by email. If your application has been approved, you will also receive a separate email shortly afterwards with the invoice for payment of school fees.

    For August-start applicants (1st semester), decisions are generally sent starting early spring.

    For January-start applicants (2nd semester), decisions are generally sent starting early November.

    For mid-semester start applicants, decisions are dependent upon the applicant’s age and space availability.

  5. Step 5: Starting School

    Before starting school, parents will complete the preparation steps provided by the School, which includes signing the Offer of Placement documents, confirming school uniform collection, lunch, and bus arrangements (if applicable), and bringing items needed for the very first day of school.
