APPLICATIONS ACCEPTED: Year-Round, but evaluated February 1 through April 15 for Fall Enrollment and November 15 through December 15 for Winter Enrollment (if available)

NOTIFICATION OF STATUS: All applicants will be notified via e-mail about their application status no later than April 20. Accepted applicants will receive an invitation to join and must reply by April 30. Choosing to join FireLight is means you are committing to attending and participating for the full school year. Because of capped enrollment, we have to turn away families each year. If you cannot commit to the year, we ask that you not join.

This application schedule allows for FireLight Leadership to get the bulk of planning for the upcoming year finished in May so that they, too, may enjoy a summer break. Thank you for understanding.
