Academy Admissions

We are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year for Pre-Kindergarten. We will have just 43 students in our Pre-Kindergarten, split into 2 classes, so we expect to have a waiting list. We encourage anyone who is interested to apply as soon as possible to ensure their student obtains a spot in the class.

What makes our Pre-Kindergarten program different?

  • Through a supervised structured play approach to learning, children are given a range of opportunities to enhance their potential for intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth.
