Registration is a TWO STEP PROCESS.

Registration is limited and open until the designated slots are filled.  Our goal is to select registered students with equity for gender and grade.

Step 1 – fill out the registration form by following the link below. Once you begin, you will need to complete the entire process as you cannot save midway through. You will need to provide your medical insurance and doctor information as well as include health and allergy information.

Step 2 – After you have submitted your registration form, you have a second form to download, print, complete, and return, called the Memo Of Understanding and Release (MOU).

Your child IS NOT REGISTERED until we have received the signed MOU.
