Step 1 - Written Application
Applications must be completed by the deadline listed above and turned in to the applicant's grade level chair teacher.
Step 2 - Application Review
Applications will be read by the Selection Committee. All identifying information will be removed and replaced with a number. Applications will then be read and scored without knowing which applicant they belong to. Selected applicants will be notified if they have advanced to the next round.
Step 3 - Discovery Conversations
Discovery conversations allow the Selection Committee to get to know selected applicants on a deeper level. This is not as stressful as a typical interview. We are committed to discovering the brightest parts of each applicant and we aim to cultivate an environment that makes them comfortable to share.

Members will be notified if they have been selected for the 2023-2024 school year!
