For the Class of 2019, we will begin accepting applications on July 8, 2014. Applications will be numbered as they are received in each of the priority placement categories. Each application must be submitted with a non-refundable, $250, tuition deposit unless the family is applying for financial assistance*. The priority placement deadline is December 1, 2014. After that date, if there are any open spaces remaining, applications will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
*The $250 non-refundable tuition deposit will be waived for any family applying for financial assistance. Anyone taking advantage of the tuition deposit waiver must complete his or her financial assistance application by December 1, 2014. At the time of application all 2013 tax documents are to be submitted. 2014 tax documents are due to FACTS by February 15, 2014 in order to complete the financial assistance application.
