Information Sessions were held on October 11th, 18th, 23rd, and 25th at 5:30pm and 7pm. During this presentation, families will learn more about our educational philosophy and school culture and have the opportunity to ask questions about our program. Parents may attend an Information Session prior to submitting the application. The presentations are for parents only.
After submitting a complete application, we will reach out to each family to schedule both a small group tour and an individual family meeting.
During the tour led by TCS staff and parents, small groups of prospective parents will have the opportunity to tour and observe the classrooms during school hours followed by a meeting with the school and education director. These tours are for parents only and are usually scheduled at 9:30am.
Each family will also visit the school for an individual family meeting. This will provide an opportunity for the admissions staff to connect with each family and child during a 20 minute meeting. These are typically scheduled in the afternoons and on Saturday mornings.
Admissions decisions will be emailed on February 28th with a reply date of March 8th.
Twins and siblings must submit individual applications.
