Frequently Asked Questions


How long after my child has completed a shadow day, and I have turned in all the necessary paperwork, can I expect to have an interview?

All applicants will be contacted to schedule an interview within one week of receiving all the necessary paperwork. The interview lasts approximately 30 minutes and upon acceptance you will meet with the Admissions Director to complete your final enrollment paperwork. Please plan to be available for one hour.
