When your child is accepted to UPNS, you will be notified by phone.
Within one (1) week of the day you were notified, you must notify UPNS of your intent to enroll or your child will be removed from the application process. Parents also have the option of declining a position and remaining on the waiting list.
Within two (2) weeks of the day that you were notified, you must come to UPNS and pick up an enrollment packet for your child. If you fail to enroll within the two week period, another child from the waiting list will be given the space.
There is a one-time non-refundable enrollment fee of $200, paid with your first month’s tuition. Occasionally, parents will be asked to pay for admission/transportation costs for field trips or for school festivities.
