Waiting Pool

Waiting Pools will be started when a grade reaches capacity, however, during the winter and spring months, there is usually movement in our enrollment numbers and many students are accepted from waiting pools!  In addition, if we receive a specific amount of wait pool applications in certain grade levels, we will look at opening another section or classroom in that grade level!  To secure a spot in the waiting pool, a $50 non-refundable deposit is required. This deposit is applied to the application fee when an opening becomes available. Please note, we utilize a wait pool, rather than a waitlist, thus the order in which you submit is not of significance.
