Enrollment Process

Solid Ground School offers a unique educational experience and is guided by a distinct educational philosophy. We want to ensure our school is right for your family.

We are full for the 2022-2023 school year. Apply to be added to the waitlist or to be considered for future school years here.

Our goal with enrollment is to attract families that appreciate and support our approach to education, value outdoor engagement, and are committed to joining our school community. To help ensure a good fit for your family, our enrollment process begins with completing an application and attending a tour and family interview to learn more about the school and our unique approach.

Step 1: Take a Self-Guided Tour

Our small staff is often busy engaging directly with our students, so we only offer tours to those who have filled out an application. Please take yourself on this self-guided tour of Solid Ground School in order to understand what it is we offer by looking through the following pages and watching the video to help you decide if you would like to apply.

Step 2: Submit your application online.

Submit an application form with a non-refundable $60 application fee. When your application, fee, and income verification information have been submitted, your application will be considered complete. Your child will then be added to our pool of applicants and/or be placed on our waiting list.

Step 3: Attend a tour and family interview

A tour will be scheduled with our Director to give you a chance to ask any questions that you may have and to help us if Solid Ground School's education will be a good fit for your family. Because children develop and change so much in a short time, we only schedule tours during the enrollment period for the school year in which you are applying. If you have applied for a children for school year farher into the future, you can expect us to schedule your tour when your child is closer to their age of admission--we want to meet them when they're ready for school!

Step 4 : Hear back with a final decision

Expect an invitation to join our school community or a letter of regret after we finish reviewing all applications. We give admission priority to children who are already attending school with us--so we won't know how many spots are available in each class until after our current families have a chance to decide whether they will return. Regardless of when you apply or tour, you can expect to wait until spring for a decision about whether we're able to accept your child.

Step 5: Pay your Deposit

Finalize your enrollment by paying a refundable deposit equal to one month’s tuition by the deadline. This payment will be applied to your child’s final monthly tuition payment.

Step 6: Prepare for the adventure to come!
