How does the Admissions Process work?
  1. Each application is scored, and we accept students based on the highest to lowest score.
  2. Students may be accepted or they will be placed on a waiting list.
  3. Students will be accepted from the waiting list as space becomes available.
  4. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements may reapply the following year.
  5. Students who are accepted must participate in a Placement Testing Program. This testing helps everyone select the right high school courses for each student.
