Admission tours, which run approximately 90 minutes, provide parents and caregivers an overview of the program and an opportunity to see teachers and students in action in their classrooms and throughout the school building. Visitors will be able to experience our incredible community of talented, smart, fun-loving, and caring students and staff hard at work.  It is not necessary to file an application prior to touring.
