After I submit an application, what is the next step in the admissions process?
We will contact you to arrange an admissions interview.
The enrollment staff works collaboratively with the faculty to facilitate an admissions process that is professional, meaningful and pedagogically sound. The most important criterion is that the family values and supports a Waldorf educational philosophy. It is also important to ascertain if we will be able to meet the needs of the student and the expectations of the family.
After the interview, what is the next step in the admissions process?
After your application is completed and you have had an interview with our faculty, you will be sent a notification in writing within one week of the interview, or as soon as possible once a decision has been made for summer or mid-year applicants.
