School Year 2016-2017:

All classes are full for the current school year. As openings arise, we will call  families that are currently on our waiting lists.  If you are interested in adding your child's name to any of the class wait lists, please call us at 727-525-8866. 




School Year 2017-2018:

At this time, we have finished giving group tours and have begun the registration process.  If any classes have openings after registration on February 2nd, we will give personal tours to families that are interested in an available spot.

The Registration Process

Due to limited space and a high number of applicants each year, we are unfortunately unable to accept every child for admission. Applications are processed in the order they are received.
