We then will schedule a parent meeting to learn more about your child.

After the shadow visit in the classroom and parent meeting, the complete application is submitted to the Armstrong Admission Committee to make an official determination whether our program is a good match for your child.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis based on available space. Decisions for the 2018-2019 school year will be shared in late January 2018. We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis until all class grades are full.
