Introductory presentations will be held in the evenings usually at 5:30pm and 7pm in the early fall. During this presentation, families will learn more about our school culture and educational philosophy and have the opportunity to ask questions about our program. Parents may attend an Introductory Presentation prior to submitting the application. The presentations are for parents only.
The application deadline is November 7th. In the event the number of applications received is greater than the number of slots available for Tours and Family Meetings, applicants will be notified and we will hold a lottery for those slots. Lottery results will be emailed on November 9th.
During the Tour led by TCS parents and staff, small groups of parents will have the opportunity to tour and observe the classrooms during school hours followed by a meeting with the school director. These tours are for parents only.
Each family selected by lottery 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 March 1st with a reply date of March 10th.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with admissions inquiries.
