  • hear testimonials from parents
  • handle the curriculum and learn more about our academic plans for the 2015-2016 school year
  • tour the facility
  • see our classes in operation (only daytime Open Houses)

Open House dates are as follows:

  • Thursday, March 19th, 9:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
  • Tuesday evening, March 24th, 7:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

Please respond to if you would like to attend one of the Open Houses or if you have any questions.  Please note, if you are unable to attend either of our dates, but would like to observe classes in progress, we are very willing to make arrangements on another day.

Course offerings for the coming year can be accessed here.

The enrollment period for new families opens March 15th.  Applications will be accepted on and after that date.
