Acceptance and Registration

  1. Notification.
    After reviewing your family’s application, we will notify you of your child’s acceptance status. Admissions decisions for the following academic year are typically made between January and March. Children who cannot be accommodated are placed on a waiting list and notified when an opening becomes available.
  2. Submit registration forms.
    Families who accept an admissions offer receive a registration package. Parents must complete and return all forms. A non-refundable registration fee and a 1-month non-refundable tuition deposit are also required. The deposit holds your child’s spot and is ultimately applied to the student’s final month of tuition.
  3. Welcome!
    After completing the registration process, we will provide a welcome package, including our Parents’ Handbook, school calendar, and other materials. We look forward to welcoming you to the Little Tiger community!
