Our pre-enrollment for the 2020-21 school year will be conducted on-line. Pre-enrollment for current school families begins on January 24, 2020 and ends on February 3, 2020. Due to class sizes, if pre-enrollment is not completed by February 3, 2020, your child(ren) may not have a spot guaranteed.
After you complete the online enrollment process on the School Portal (Steps 1-6 below), you will be directed to FACTS tuition website where you will pay your registration and technology fees and sign up for your tuition payment plan. You will need your Unique Code from FACTS. (It should have been emailed to the email address you have associated with your FACTS account on Jan 24, 2020.) Remember: you can pay either by e-check (no cost to you) or by credit card (additional fees will apply). Your registration will not be complete without accessing the FACTS website to 1) Set up a tuition payment plan for the 20-21 school year AND 2) Pay registration and technology fees for 20-21. Health, After School Care, and Photo Release forms are due in August during registration, but will be accepted anytime between now and then.
Open enrollment for new school families will begin February 4, 2020. All new families must enroll using a paper enrollment form which can be obtained by calling the school office at 913.422.5520.

All kindergartners must be evaluated before the first day of school and meet reasonable academic requirements. The student and the parents must be willing and able to abide by all policies and regulations as stated in the current Student / Parent Handbook.
