You may contact us by phone, email, fax, or just by visiting the school’s principal. At that time the principal will give a tour of the facility and give an overview of what it’s like to be a student. The child may come with the parent during this visit.
Students seeking to enroll must satisfy the following:
Complete New Student Enrollment Application and submit that completed form with the appropriate non-refundable testing fee, birth certificate, South Carolina Certificate of Immunization and a current transcript for evaluation by this school.

Age Requirements for entering Kindergarten and Grade 1:
The student must turn the appropriate age by December 31 on or before of the year of enrollment to enter the grade.
There are seven steps to the application process. Each area must be satisfied before your child can be officially accepted into the program.
