Rising Tide has opened an August Enrollment Application Period for the 2019-2020 school year. 

The school currently has seats available for grades 9, 10, and 11 and is therefore accepting applications for those grades. As there is a possibility that the grade 5 and 7 wait list may be exhausted at some point before February 15 of next school year, we are also accepting applications for grade 5 and 7, to be drawn in the event that the wait list is exhausted before that date. Rising Tide currently has long waiting lists in grades 6 and 8 and does not anticipate exhausting the wait list for those grade levels and is therefore not able to accept applications for those grades.

Enrollment applications are due by Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 3 p.m. All applicants, including siblings of current students, must accurately submit the one-page application by the deadline to be eligible for enrollment. A public drawing will be held at 59 Armstrong Road for grades 9, 10, and 11 on Monday, September 16 at 10 a.m. if necessary.
