In addition to the application, you must also submit:

All application materials will be reviewed by the class teacher who will determine if an interview or class visit is the appropriate next step. The Enrollment Director will contact you to schedule either an interview and/or a five-day class visit. After this step, eligibility for acceptance into the class will be determined by the faculty. Their decision will be communicated in writing to the applicant’s parents or guardians.
Upon acceptance, the Enrollment Director will be in contact with the family to execute an Enrollment Agreement and to make all necessary financial arrangements.
We offer limited tuition assistance for families that qualify. Families that turn in a student application and application fee should visit TADS to set up an account and complete the application process.
