Application Process

We are currently accepting applications for our elementary (K-5) and middle school (6-8) programs for the 2014 - 2015 school year on a space available basis.  Please call (858) 576-2120 to speak with our admissions staff regarding specific grade level openings.

The following outlines the steps of our application process:

1. Schedule a tour

You may schedule a tour by contacting us at, (858) 576-2120 or completing the online form: Schedule a Tour

During the tour you will have the opportunity to ask questions, meet the Principals or Executive Director, visit the classrooms, and hear what makes TCPS San Diego's best small private school.  At the conclusion of the tour you will receive an application packet. You may also download the packet below.

2. Complete the application packet.

The application packet contains:

  • Records Release Form and the Permission to Evaluate Form.  
  • Application for Admission Form for each student you wish to be considered.  
  • Teacher Recommendation Form. This form is to be completed by the students teacher(s) and returned directly to TCPS by the teacher.  



* If you submit a digital application, please note that a hand-written signature is required for all applications prior to application completion.

3. Schedule an evaluation

Once all materials are complete and we have received the $100 non-refundable application fee, we will schedule a time for your child to meet with one of our teachers for the evaluation. The goal of this 45 minute evaluation is to begin to get to know your child.

4. Receive written notification

Once all documents have been returned to TCPS and all evaluations and assessments are completed, parents will receive written notification of a decision regarding placement at TCPS. It is expected that this process will take a minimum of two weeks.
