Our admission process is holistic so that each student can share his or her story. Our goal is to determine if the prospective student and the school community are a good match.
- resonate with our student profile,
- seek to contribute to and engage with a community of peers,
- and have a desire to thrive in our relationship-based model.
They may also have learning challenges that we are designed to accommodate and/or emotional struggles we can support. We are not structured to support students needing a therapeutic program.
While testing clearly indicates giftedness in some of our students, it can also be very misleading for others. Some FlexSchool students have all high scores while others have loads of peaks and valleys – what we call “scatter”. Whatever your child’s scores, if our student profile fits then we encourage you to learn more about us.

How to Apply to FlexSchool
Because each FlexSchool campus is embedded in their community, the application process varies slightly for each campus. Please choose the campus you are interested in from the buttons below and you will be taken to the application process for that campus.
FlexSchool recognizes that our students may be seeking a school change mid-year and therefore we will review applications and continue to enroll students throughout the 2017-18 school year on a space-available basis. Applicants will be notified of decisions typically within two weeks of applying.
Financial aid and scholarship application is a separate process from admission. More information can be found here.
High School Students
We will also speak with the families of high school applicants to make sure that their goals are aligned with the academic trajectory the student will pursue at FlexSchool.
Students who have graduated from high school either in the United States or internationally are welcome to apply to spend an additional year with us getting ready for college. Students will be placed in a combination of classes and/or private classes that match his or her strengths, needs, and interests.
Our English as a Second Language/English Language Learner courses meet federal visa requirements. Students are admitted on an individual basis. A high school transcript, translated into English, is required. Interviews are conducted in person or via video conference.
