Interviews: Prospective students (Grades 5 and above) and all parents or guardians will be interviewed following completion of the application form and prior to consideration of admission. Admission decisions are the responsibility of the administrator and are final. All new students will enter on a 30-day provisional period to allow the family and the school to determine if we are a suitable match. Parents will receive written notice of final admission shortly after the 30-day period, which may be extended, if deemed necessary.
