Openings for the upper-grade levels (7th - 10th) will depend on the number of non-returning students. 
Please note that this number averages between 3-15 openings each year per grade level.

This year we will have a Virtual Open House for all prospective families on Friday, October 22, 2021 from 9:00am-10:30 am.
