Tuition assistance awards are made in the spring prior to the start of the upcoming school year. The size of the tuition assistance fund for a given school year is set by the Board based on the overall budget picture. The community commits to raising that amount in order to support the families requesting aid and maintain full enrollment in the school. The amount a family receives varies, based on how many families request aid in a given year, the “size of the pot”, and how long a child has been at the school. To check about availability of tuition assistance funds, please call the office.
The admission process begins with a tour of the school and a conversation with the Head of School. Then comes the classroom visit by the child and a conversation between the parents and the class teacher. Records from the child’s previous school are requested as well as a completed application and a $50 application fee. The decision to admit is the class teacher’s, after consultation with the specialty teachers, based on perceived “fit” for the child and the class as a whole. As needed, the school also conducts a screening of the applicant to gauge academic and developmental readiness. Parents are notified by the Head of School of the decision.
