Step by Step Admissions:
1. Parents or guardians attend an information session.
If this is not possible, please contact the school to schedule a private meeting.
2. Parents or guardians fill out the application and pay the application fee of $80.
3. Parents or guardians schedule a day for the student to visit the school. We like for a student to visit a full day for students entering into 1st grade and up. For younger students, an appropriate amount of time will be discussed and scheduled accordingly.
4. Family provides DGS with school records and a teacher recommendation.
At this time, if both the family and DGS feel that the DGS is a good fit for the student, the student is offered admission to DGS. To secure the student’s place at DGS:
5. Family signs the tuition agreement and provides the enrollment deposit
and the fall fees.
6. Family provides DGS with a copy of the student’s birth certificate and immunization records (or exemption).
*Students entering into Primary class must be fully potty trained before starting at DGS.
