2021-2022 ENROLLMENT

It's nearly that time of year again! Classical School's new student application period for the 2021-2022 school year will begin December 1, 2020. Applications will be accepted for the lottery beginning on December 1, 2020. Applications will be accepted for the lottery through February 19, 2021. Any applications received after that date will be added to the waiting list (or enrollment list if we still have openings) in the order in which they are received.

Students who are currently attending Classical School do NOT need to reapply; however, siblings who are not currently enrolled at Classical School must submit a completed application during the lottery application acceptance window to be included in and receive sibling priority in the lottery drawing. Incoming kindergarteners for the 2021-2022 school year also need to apply between December 1, 2020 and February 19, 2021 to be included in the lottery drawing.

Paper applications will be available beginning December 1st from the school office. Alternatively, there will be an online application that may be accessed from the school's website at Please contact Joanne Bielmeier with any questions about the lottery process:


As the winter months begin, families ask for suggestions for special treats or gifts to give teachers and other staff members. To make this easier for families, we have asked staff members to fill out a list of favorite treats, hobbies, and interests, etc. This list can be found on a cart outside the school office. Thank you!


Report cards for the first quarter will be distributed at school for Grades K-4 or USPS mailed home for Grades 5-8 on Wednesday, November 18th.
