Nonstandard Entry Points
Life tends to throw all too many curveballs, and families often find themselves in a position of looking for a private school at a nonstandard entry point such as 3rd grade, 8th grade or even after admissions deadlines have passed. While entering schools is most common in Kindergarten, 7th, and 9th grade, applying for admission for an off grade level is not an insurmountable feat. Our intimate knowledge of the schools in Los Angeles and relationships with admissions offices will help families select schools with the best opportunity for admissions.
