STUDENT AND PARENT/GUARDIAN INTERVIEWS

The interview is a REQUIRED part of the application process for 9th grade applicants. This is a chance for us to speak one-on-one with your family. The total interview time lasts about 45-60 minutes. The first 30 minutes will be with the student followed by a conversation with the parent(s)/guardian(s).  Interviews are offered most school days September through January and can be conducted via Zoom or in person. [We will reach out to 10th and 11th grade applicants in late January to schedule an interview if space becomes available in either of those grades.]

Your application does NOT need to be completed before an interview. But all interviews must be scheduled by the application deadline January 5, 2023 by 5:00 p.m.
