Availability is always subject to change, but the average acceptance numbers for our programs are as follows: 3-year old (62), 4-year old (25), Kindergarten (6), First Grade (5), and Second, Third, and Fourth Grades are subject to availability.

All applicants are required to complete the admission process.  If all factors considered are equal, preferential admission consideration is given to applicants of current siblings and graduates, as well as children of Lamplighter alumni.

Yes. Schedule your required parent meeting online.

8. Can my child visit the school before the scheduled visit?

Due to our open classroom environment, we do not invite children to come to the school prior to their playdate visit.  The Office of Admission and Placement does recommend that you mention the scheduled visit to the child in advance to help prepare them for the experience.

All parents are invited to participate in an Admission Coffee and/or the Admission Preview.  Tours begin early in the school year and may be scheduled by calling 214.369.9201, ext. 347.  Please note that separate individual parent meetings are still required.
