Re-Enrollment

Students who are currently enrolled in the school are automatically accepted for the following school year for grades 1 – 8 unless removed for cause or for the family’s failure to meet tuition responsibilities. Re-registration for current students for the upcoming school year is conducted in early spring. Tuition Agreements are sent to parents through our Family Mail Service in the spring and a student is considered re-registered once the Tuition Agreement is signed and returned to the Business Office along with the $100 Family Registration Fee.
