Step 2: Apply online  

Applications for the 2024-2025 school year are available at the link below.

Step 3:  Documents:
You will be asked to upload all documentation online with your application before the application is considered complete. 

All applicants: Birth certificate, full-year report card for the last year completed, most recent report card for current school year (two report cards total), most recent standardized test results, and immunization records.
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.

1st grade applicants: 1st grade Health Screen.
Step 4: Student Assessment / Placement Testing:
Once your application has been submitted and all documents are provided, our Admissions Coordinator will schedule a testing date and time. After testing, parents will meet with our testing administrator to review the results.

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 an invitation to enroll.  The email will include a link to the enrollment packet.  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):
