ADMISSIONS PROCESS

1

Read about Heritage School (Grades 1-8) on this website, including the current policies and FAQs.  Submit an Inquiry Form if you'd like further information, have specific questions for our teachers, or would like to begin the admission process. The Admissions Coordinator will call you to talk further. If there is interest on both sides, a parent visit is scheduled.

Parents can schedule a morning visit (8:30-11:30am). In the typical admissions cycle, this can begin as early as October for the following school year. During this visit, both parents tour the building and observe Morning Meeting, math groups, break, and part of study. As children write in journals during Morning Meeting, parents meet with teachers privately, so faculty can learn about the child and answer questions.

3

If there is interest by both parties to move forward, parents submit an Admissions Application with a $50 application fee. Submission of the application prompts coordination between faculty and parents to schedule a Student Visit. These visits might begin as early as February for the coming school year.

4

The student participates in a full (or half day) at Heritage, allowing for engagement in group activities, as well as one-on-one assessment. Following this visit, the Coordinator will contact the family to further discuss admission and timing of decisions based on the calendar year.

5

If both parents and Heritage teachers consider the school to be a good placement, a pre-enrollment visit is arranged (after school or during the evening).  Children are not present at this meeting.  At this pre-enrollment visit, parents and teachers discuss the Heritage program, talk about parents' goals for their child(ren), and become better acquainted. Completed registration forms, tuition contract, and immunizations documents are submitted, along with the $500 registration deposit, at this meeting.
