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.
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 has typically begun with attending an open house or tour to learn more about the school and our unique approach. We have instead created a self-guided tour on our website and are conducting family interviews using video conferencing or phone.
Our open houses and tours for spring 2020 have been cancelled to protect the public, but we are enrolling students for 2020-2021!
Step 1: Take a Self-Guided Tour
In lieu of attending an Open House, 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.
Step 2: Submit your application
Submit an application form with a non-refundable $60 application fee. When your application, fee, and income verification information have been submitted AND you have attended the above self-guided tour or an open house, 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 remote interview
A remote interview with your family will be scheduled by video conferencing (or phone if needed) to give you a chance to ask any questions that you may have and to ultimately help us all to decide if we have a good fit.
Step 4 : Hear back with a final decision
Expect an invitation to join our school community after we review applications. We collect applications and consider them as a group so that we can create the best possible classroom fit for children and families.
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.
