How does the school prioritize enrollment, I don't want to miss out?

Admission to the Episcopal Day School is premised upon the existence of a vacancy for which, in accordance with the plan of enrollment adopted by the School, the candidate is qualified. Candidates are chosen on the basis of academic ability and interest in the programs at the Episcopal Day School, not on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, or sex. The Episcopal Day School is established primarily (1) for the members of the Church of the Advent (2) other Episcopalians (3) the Christian community and (4) the community at large.
