How to Apply

We use an online application platform called Ravenna. To submit an application, families will need to create an account or log in using an existing account. Through Ravenna, you will also be able to register for events and schedule a tour.

Steps to apply (download checklist):

1. Schedule a virtual visit by completing an online inquiry form.

2. Submit an application through Ravenna. The required components of a complete application are:
  • Application (download hard copy)
  • Teacher Recommendation(s) Form
  • Transcript (for grades 1-8)
  • Assessment:
    • Kindergarten: We will provide directions for activities that families will record their child doing. Families will then submit these videos as their child's assessment.
    • Grades 1-8: In order to protect student health and safety, all assessments will be virtual this year. We will conduct assessments via Zoom.
