Siblings are given first consideration, and then legacies, depending on availability. (If your child is a Lone Mountain legacy, please call us at 415-876-0057 prior to applying.)
Everyone who applies by the end of November of the year prior to entry will be included in a random computer-generated drawing for the available non-sibling spots. It’s okay to apply sooner, but there is no advantage to applying earlier than the fall prior to entry. Individual tours are by invitation and based on the random computer-generated queue of all those who apply, and the number of available non-sibling spots. Tours begin each year in mid-January. After your meeting with the Director you will be invited to return on another day with your child and spend an hour in the classroom.
If the class fills before we reach your child's name in the queue you will be notified by mail, typically in the first week of March, and given the opportunity to remain on the wait list for future enrollment.
We often have spots for children entering our Pre-Kindergarten class and we accept applications during the Fall prior to desired enrollment. Please call for additional information on the likelihood of availability in our Pre-Kindergarten prior to submitting an application.
