Applicants Requiring Academic Accommodations

It is important that our staff discusses the applicant’s accommodation plan, so that we may further be aware of the specialized needs of the student.

Transfer students are NOT required to take a placement exam. Transfer students are accepted based on their current high school academic performance, behavioral records, and interview with the Dean of Admissions, Headmaster, and Dean of Students.
