Thank you for your interest in Brighter Horizons Academy! We are delighted that you are considering our Academy for your child’s education and the Office of Admission is here to assist you in your application process.
Application Process for 2018-2019
Brighter Horizons Academy’s admission process and criteria aim at considering each applicant holistically. Our decisions are based on the evaluation of the applicant’s values, character, academics, behavior, self-motivation, and citizenship.
Before filling out our online application, please make sure to read through all of the instructions. We also strongly encourage you to attend one of our Admission events or to contact us and schedule a personalized tour.
Note: If you are interested in applying for PK-1 (3 years old by October 1, 2018) for the 2018-2019 academic year, please fill out our Interest Form. The opening of a PK-1 section for 2018-2019 will depend on the number of interested families and the availability of a classroom.
For the 2018-2019 academic year admission applications, we highly encourage families to meet our priority deadlines.
What are priority deadlines? As our student body grows, we receive many more applications than we have open seats available. We therefore encourage families to apply and complete their admission process as early as possible before our sections fill up. Applicants who will meet our priority deadlines will be receiving an admission decision earlier. We will continue to accept applications after these deadlines and accept successful applicants on a rolling basis, with longer delays.
In order to beat our high peak season enrollment, please complete your application as early as possible. Applications for the 2018-2019 Academic School year opens on November 1st.

STEP TWO: Document Submission
