The admissions process begins with a tour. Touring, meeting our teachers and seeing our program first hand is truly the best way to understand all that Dunn Prep has to offer. Tours generally last between 30-45 minutes and can be arranged at times that are convenient to your schedule.
If your family decides that Dunn Prep is the best option for your child the next step is to complete an application. There is a $25 application fee. The application must be submitted with the most recent report card, standardized testing, and any relevant educational information including evaluations or Individual Education Plans if applicable.
3. Shadow Day/Classroom Visit
After applying, your child will be scheduled for a shadow day during which they will participate in the classroom and experience the feel of our school. The faculty are provided an opportunity to interact with your child and provide a preliminary reading and math assessments. It is a great way to determine if Dunn Prep is the best fit for your child.
4. Admissions Committee Review
Your student’s application will be considered by the admissions committee. A determination is made relative to enrollment and the parent is notified of the committee’s decision via email or letter. If a student is invited to attend, you will receive an enrollment packet. A $250 enrollment fee is required at the time of enrollment to secure your placement along with a $75 registration fee.
