Step 3: Evaluation
Each new kindergarten through twelfth grade student is required to take an entrance examination which is a combination aptitude achievement test. Additional testing may be requested for classroom placement in math, grammar, and foreign language.
If testing results suggest questions concerning academic success or progress of a student, the application and test results are reviewed by the STEP Coordinator and Admissions Committee to determine placement, intervention possibilities, and final determination in relation to student acceptance.
Step 4: Acceptance
An interview is conducted with all families applying for admission. Preschool through fifth grade students are not required to attend the interview.
After review of each application and interview, parents will be notified of the Admission Committee's decision regarding admittance.
At least one parent is required to attend the Back to School Orientation held in August. All necessary communication such as classroom assignment, athletic calendars, etc. will be provided online or by mail prior to the beginning of school.
