For students applying to grades other than K, 6, and 9, the waitlist application for the 2018-2019 school year is now open on SchoolMint. Simply sign up and create an account to get started on your application. You may easily check and/or review your waitlist status at any time by signing into your SchoolMint account. Students admitted from our rolling waitlist will be contacted electronically via email and/or phone, so please be sure to update your contact information if it changes.
