Admission Process

It's important to put thought into choosing the village you want to allow to help raise your child. We are glad that you are considering The Garden, and our admissions process is designed to explore that fit so that you can make the best decision for your family and we can make the best decision for ours.

  1. Visit the school to see our dynamic curriculum and approach in action. Stop by an open house, or contact us to arrange a personal tour of our campus and to ask any questions you may have about our school.

  2. Complete the application for admissions, which includes information about your student and family, and requires a $100 application fee. 

  3. Schedule an observation day for your student to participate in the life of the school, and submit required assessment information.

  4. Complete a family interview to review application packet and identify any potential needs or considerations. Both parents are strongly encouraged to be present.

  5. Acceptance decision will be communicated within on March 31, 2018 for standard admissions, or within 2 business days of family interview for rolling admissions.
