We operate on rolling admissions. Students may start at any time, even in the middle of the “typical” September-June public school year, and continue throughout the summer if necessary. Because of this policy, it is possible to re-do entire semesters or years in a very short amount of time.
We do not judge students based on previous grades. Transcripts are used merely to design an individual program, not to measure the student’s worth. At Cortona, we understand the importance of the family’s love, support, and commitment to the child as well as the student’s desire for a kinder, more flexible learning environment where individual gifts and dreams are respected.
We are pleased to conduct interviews by telephone and/or in person. Both parents and prospective students should be present. To set up an admissions conference with the Director, please call 703.464.0034 between 9AM and 5PM on weekdays.
