The Application Process

We accept applications on an ongoing basis for January or September enrollment. The earlier you apply, the earlier you can be accepted and considered for scholarship opportunities.

The process begins with an application. Once we receive a completed application form, we will send a request for transcripts and evaluation forms to candidate’s present school. Please note: an acceptance decision cannot be rendered until we have this information.

We are committed to notifying you of our decision within one week of receiving your completed application. Written notification of the decision will be mailed. Upon notification of acceptance a $500 deposit is required, which will be credited toward tuition.

To begin the application process, click here for the online application form.
