Notification of Decision
Each of our applicants will receive a written notice or a phone call telling them when their application folder is complete. Our Admission Committees will meet during late January and February to review all complete applications. We will announce decisions for all complete applicants on February 15, 2013 by putting our decision letters in the mail that day. Boarding decisions will be announced on March 8, 2013. Feel free to be in touch with a member of the Admission Team after decisions are announced with any questions or concerns regarding your child.
