Admissions for 2018-2019

We are currently accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year.


  • We will be holding an Information Night for K-9 admissions on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.


  • Because of the large number of requests for school tours and opportunities to speak to staff, we wish to minimize disruption to the school day by asking that those interested in touring the school choose one of the following dates and times. We are asking families to limit their attendance to a maximum of 2 attendees.
    • January 25 (9:30 am or 10:45 am)
    • February 5 (9:30 am or 10:45 am)
  • This is a pre-registration event. Click HERE to register and enter the event code: nhstr


  • While we have some basic school fees, New Horizons is a publicly funded school. We have no tuition fees.
