THE DEXTER ADMISSIONS PROCESS
Admissions at Dexter is open year-round. We offer enrollment as space is available, but we do things a little differently. We believe that a safe and productive environment for students is the starting point for a great educational experience. This informs our admissions process. We also believe that your children should have the opportunity to give Dexter a try, so we offer something that other schools do not, we offer a "Shadow Day".
Campus Tour - schedule a tour with us, come in and we will take you on a tour guided by our Principal to see if Dexter is a good fit for your family. You will see the halls of Dexter, the auditorium, cafeteria, playground, sanctuary and campus grounds where the students learn, grow and play. You will meet some of our team and obtain more information.
Shadow Day - your student will be invited to live a day in the life as a Dexter student. They’ll be scheduled to come in and partnered with a student buddy for a day, go to class and meet new friends. Along the way our educators will evaluate how they treat others around them as well as how they perform in a classroom setting. Are they kind? Are they respectful? Are they passionate about learning?
Enrollment Decision - The Campus Administrators will review your student’s shadow day evaluations to determine if they will receive an invitation to enroll. Our primary responsibility is to ensure that every new Dexter student will be a productive and kind member of our school community. You will be notified by email if your student is invited to enroll.
