Admissions Process

Admissions Steps Video

Consists of 4 steps:

  • Submitting an online application, including the non-refundable $75 application fee per applicant and accompanying documents
  • Admissions Testing (For Pre-k & K it is more of a developmental assessment)
  • Family Interview where the parents and student/s meet with the principal
  • Admissions Decision

When submitting an admissions application you are creating an account with TCS through our parent portal where you can upload and complete any requested documents. The quicker you upload the items needed the quicker you move through the admissions process.  Mrs. Jean Marie Staico, Admissions Manager will contact you via email to let you know what is needed throughout the process.
