Priority of Acceptance

Priority of Acceptance applies to all students who complete applications by the application deadline.

  1. All currently enrolled students who have re-registered by the due date, unless the school has determined that the child may not return for the following year. The school reserves the right to reconsider and retract renewal of admission after the due date if, between the date of re-registration and the beginning of the following school year, situations are discovered which are in serious violation of school policies and which, had they occurred or been discovered earlier, would have led to the student not receiving re-registration forms.

  2. Students whose siblings are currently enrolled in the school.

  3. Parishioners of Good Standing of the Annunciation Cathedral.

  4. All other Orthodox families.

  5. Students of other religious affiliations.

Unusual circumstances not covered by the previous priorities shall be at the discretion of the Head of School or their designee.
