2. Submitting an Application

Your admissions file is opened once we receive a completed application and fee. For each applicant we also require a teacher recommendation and academic records for current and previous years. To begin your application, select Online Application.

Please note: The $125 application fee is non-refundable. You may first wish to check with the Admissions Office concerning classroom availability.

3. Understanding Heritage

We want your family to fully embrace our Classical Christian program. In order to make the most of your partnership with us, it is important to understand our education philosophy and the history behind it. Regarding this, we encourage both parents to read An Introduction to Classical Education by Christopher Perrin. To read online, click on the title from the top right menu.

4. Testing

Students applying for grades 1-6 participate in an academic/developmental assessment held at Heritage in conjunction with a classroom visit. Students applying for admission to grades 7-12 are required to take the ISEE entrance exam and will do their classroom visits separately. All visits are to be scheduled through the Admissions Office.

5. The Interview

The parent interview is a vital part of the admissions process. Once all paperwork and testing is complete, we meet with both parents in order to get to know one another more personally.

6. Timing

Ideally, the process begins in the fall of the academic year prior to the year your student hopes to attend. Priority applications, including all paperwork and testing, are due by March 31 for decision notification in early April. Once these priority admissions are complete, applications will continue to be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis and spaces offered as they are available. If no space is open, waiting pools are established and you will be notified should a spot become available.
