Shadow

Admissions Process

Our Admissions Process is designed to provide several opportunities for you to visit our campus and discover the value of our small student-to-teacher ratio and our individualized learning model. We require that you attend at least one Coffee & Chat or the Open House, and schedule a separate campus tour. Students will be required to attend a shadow day for Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Students applying for K3 and K4 will come for a morning visit and assessment. Other on campus opportunities include Story Time for our K3-K5 students, and World's Fair Day for any prospective parent. Visit opportunities include:

  • Individual Tours: Starting in the fall, prospective families may call the school office (423-894-3200) to schedule a tour. You will see the entire campus, hear and see how our school mission is implemented on a daily basis, and discover many of the opportunities afforded the students both inside and outside the classroom. Parents can view the classrooms but interaction with the teachers is reserved for the Story Time Open House in order to minimize the disruption during instructional time. Tours are required for admittance to HVCS.
  • Coffee & Chat: October 22, 2021 from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Join us for coffee and a chance to meet with our Head of School and Admissions Director.
