Application Process

The on-line application for the 2018-19 academic year is located under the 'Apply Now' webpage. 

If you are interested in the Stephen J. Edmonds Learning Center you must complete an additional application specific to the student's learning differences and/or disability. No additional fee is required. 

Due to the overwhelming number of applicants and the increasing demand for financial aid, we encourage students to apply as early as possible in the fall of their eighth grade year and to submit their financial aid applications with their admissions application.  

US citizens are required to pay a $100 on-line application fee, $125 paper copy application fee. International students are required to pay a $150 application fee.

We offer rolling admissions and early admissions. Early Admissions application deadline is December 15, 2017. Decision letters will be mailed February 15, 2018.
