Email our Kindergarten teacher:

1. Contact the Academy

Call or email the Academy office expressing interest. You may also contact our kindergarten teacher directly. The headmaster and the kindergarten teacher will then share preliminary information.

2. Initial Parent Interview

A parent/teacher interview will be scheduled to discuss next steps. We typically schedule these interviews starting in January. You'll receive more information and next steps during this meeting.

3. Child Screening

A simple child screening test will be set up to determine child readiness. Child screenings will take place in late April. We notice that this is the best time of the year for children, as they've had the majority of the school year to continue learning.

Here's what your child should know

4. Observe a Class

Parents can optionally sit in on a kindergarten class to observe parent/student interactions.

5. Acceptance

Our Kindergarten teachers will reach out with their assessment of your child. If they determine that your child is ready for Kindergarten, registration papers will be sent along with a welcome letter and supply list. You can apply for the following school year.
