    Once the application is complete and reviewed, Kinder applicants will be invited to an assessment (Kinder Round Up or Junta). In grades 1-5, after the application is reviewed, applicants will be invited to an assessment once seats become available.

    Due to an increase in applicants and limited seat availability, an applicant may remain in this step for an undetermined time.

    At the Upper Campus, applicants may register for the ISEE exam, while turning in all required documents. The cost is $155 which is payable to ERB. Testing dates and registration directions are found within the checklist online.
  • Application Review

    Once all required documents are submitted and assessment is complete, the application is then reviewed by Admissions and Administration.
  • Invitation to Interview

    Due to an increase in applications and limited seats available, not all applicants will be invited to interview. The most qualified applicants will be invited first. Note that an interview does not guarantee enrollment.
