This maintains your position on the wait list until your child is accepted into our school or you chose to remove them from the list. Note:  the wait list application does not guarantee admission into the Co-op. Registration begins in January and continues until the school is fully enrolled.  Placement is made based on the following criteria:

  • currently enrolled children
  • siblings of currently enrolled children
  • Co-op alumni
  • new families based on date of application
