Admissions Overview

We are now accepting applications for the 2016/2017 school year.

We have a rolling admissions policy, we continue to accept applications for the current school year (15/16) in classes that still have available space until spring.

The Admissions Committee meets regularly to review new applications.  Families must submit a completed application packet before the application will be considered by the committee.  A complete packet is described below. Please note that the $75.00 application fee must accompany the paperwork.

Cornerstone values a diverse student population and each learner’s unique strengths and challenges.  Please make sure that you have submitted all of the requested records and testing so the committee can make the most informed decision.

Shadowing for prospective students is by invitation only. Visits are set up by the Admissions Director for Preschool through 8th grade.
