To begin, submit an online application.  CLICK HERE TO APPLY. 

The "Getting to Know You" section should be filled out by applicants independently, without the help of parents. We invite applicants to submit additional materials that will help us get to know you better and that is not reflected elsewhere in our application.  This may include artwork, schoolwork, poetry, an essay, a video, information about hobbies/skills/special talent or another format of your choice.  We know that you are much more than an online form!
