REQUIRED DOCUMENTS: Original birth certificate (we will make a copy); latest report card; standardized test results; immunization records. The student file is complete when all the above documents are provided.
6th-8th grade applicants: a reference letter from the student’s current school. K-5th grade applicants: a reference letter is not required, but certainly helpful.
Step 4: Student Assessment / Placement Testing:
Once your application is submitted and all documents are provided, you will receive an email from our Admissions Coordinator, Ellen Liljekvist. Ellen will schedule a testing date and time. After testing, parents will meet with Dr. Ennis.
Step 5: Admissions Decisions / Invitation to Enroll:
All candidates will participate in a screening which includes a placement test, student interview and review of documents. Upon completion, each candidate will be notified by the Admission Office: :
1. Accepted - Admission with Invitation to Enroll.
Once the candidate is accepted, you will be emailed with an invitation to enroll. The email will include a link to follow. If you have any questions, please contact Donna Barradas, 805-644-9515, ext. 562.
2. Wait listed - Due to full capacity, we maintain a wait list. Placement from the wait list is determined by grade level, classroom size and the review of the student's completed Admissions file. There is no number or date order of priority on the wait list. If we have a seat that opens for a wait list student, you will be notified by the Admissions office.
3. Not Accepted
Step 6: Complete Enrollment (Accepted Applicants):
