Online Application

Complete our online waiting list application (this will open in a new window). Once completed, please make sure that you click on the link to pay your $35 application fee. Your application will not be processed until your fee is accepted.

You will receive an e-mail notification within 48 business hours after your application is processed. Once you have turned in an application to be placed on our waiting list we ask that all families schedule a tour of our facility. When your family is offered a spot, you are given 24 hours to make a decision. So, it is important that you have visited and are familiar with our program.

Please notify the school of any changes to your contact information so that we may efficiently and accurately reach you should a spot become available.

If you are pregnant or adopting, and you have already added your future child to our waiting list,  please fill out the birth announcement form after your child has arrived.
