The Guide for New Families

Guide for New Families

To assist in navigating the registration process, we've created the Guide for New Families.  Downloadable and printable, it details all the forms, documentation, and information the School requires for registration as found on this webpage. It also contains handy School contacts and office numbers, a list of what to bring to campus, and the most frequently asked questions by new families. Click here for your copy!



We are pleased to offer a series of topic-specific webcasts for new students and families in the coming months. They are designed to provide you with helpful information as you and your student prepare for school in September.
