This gives you the opportunity to see the children fully engaged in their learning, as well as speaking with Heidi about your educational desires for your child.

2.     Submit an Application.  Our admissions process, both for application and enrollment, is submitted through an online system called TADS. A link to TADS is here.  Completed applications are due by January 31, 2018.  Applications received after this date will be considered if space if available.   Upon submission of your application and payment of the non-refundable $75 application fee, parents will be contacted to schedule an interview.

3.    Attend an interview along with your child.

4.    Admissions Notification.  Once your child’s application is accepted, completing enrollment is a two-step process:

Step 1: Completing Enrollment
You will receive an email from TADS prompting you to complete your child’s enrollment.  You will pay your child’s non-refundable deposit at this time.

Step 2: Setting up your Tuition Agreement
