Middle School and High School Admissions

Middle and high school waitlists are now closed.

  • If you did not receive a waitlist offer by August 13, you will keep your child's current offer. This is the program that your child will attend this school year.
  • If you need an emergency medical or safety transfer, you can contact a Family Welcome Center.
