We are currently accepting Admissions materials for the 2017-18 school year.  Applications must be completed online with all supporting documentation submitted by Friday, January 27 in order to be eligible for the New Student Lottery to be held on Friday, February 24.

Acceptance letters are sent starting in mid-April and enrollment is contingent on receipt of the student’s official report card and adherence to the TSA Admission Policy.
