Foothills School is offering informational tours as the first step in the application process for 2022-23. You can contact Katy to schedule a tour. The school encourages prospective parents to start the application process as soon as possible for 2022-23. During the application process, parents will have the opportunity to talk with school members, see the school, and ask lots of questions. 

To apply for admission to Foothills, we ask that prospective parents complete our application process. Our application process involves parents touring the school, completing an online application and paying a non-refundable $50 fee, submitting school records and a teacher referral (K-9), and completing a student visit (K-9) or parent classroom observation visit (EL). We ask that parents interested in applying for financial aid also complete the online financial aid application for their child's application to be complete. 

Foothills' application process is designed to provide families and the school with the necessary information to determine if a good match exists. Through the admission of new families, Foothills strives to build upon a diverse family community and student body that are well-matched with the school's mission, values, and educational program.
