Process and Timelines


  1. An online application is submitted.
  2. The Admissions Office may request additional documents after an initial application review. Depending on grade level and seat availability, students applying to ASD may have an assessment which could include a class visit for Lower Elementary (K1-Grade 2) students, review of standardized test reports and entrance testing.
  3. Depending on seat availability, the Admissions Committee formally reviews applications. If applying for September admission for the upcoming school year, initial spaces are offered starting in December. If applying for the current school year, spaces are offered depending on seat availability.
  4. The Admissions Office contacts parents with the Committee’s decision. The Committee will decide one of the following:
    • Approved for Admission with a Seat Available
      The applicant is accepted to ASD and a seat is reserved for a particular grade level. A letter of acceptance is issued and a deposit is required.
    • Approved for Admission with No Seat Available
      The applicant meets ASD's admission criteria. However, no seat is available at the time. The student is placed on the waiting list until a seat is available.
    • No Offer 
      The applicant does not meet ASD eligibility and requirements for admission. Each year some applicants are denied admission on (1) the basis of academic and/or behavioral records, (2) when the applicant’s mastery of the English language is not proficient for the grade he/she is applying for or (3) when ASD lacks a program to meet the applicant’s needs.
    • Deferred
      Deferrals are given when, in the judgment of the admissions committee, the applicant needs additional time to improve his/her academic or behavioral record.


  • October 1: Completed applications can be submitted for the next academic year.
  • October: Attend an Admission Event
  • November/December: Further documentation may be requested by the admissions office, including recommendation forms.
  • November: Entrance assessments start. 
  • December: Spaces begin to be allocated.
  • May/June: Full tuition is invoiced.
