Our Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in learning more about our program and community – we encourage you to explore the website, follow our Facebook page, and most importantly, connect with our passionate educators, school leaders, and families through a variety of events hosted each admission season.

Finding the best match – of school, child and family – takes time and trust. Our goal is to understand your hopes and expectations for your child’s education, and to share our mission and program with you. Throughout the process, we look for families whose values align with our community. At Meridian we are:

  • Guided by a belief in the power of a wide range of human potential. We approach each child’s learning flexibly and responsively.
  • Committed to social justice as a human value. We are recognized leaders in creating a school culture of equity and inclusion.
  • Inspired by the science and art of teaching and learning. Meridian creates a learning environment community for both students and adults.
  • Dedicated to the importance of connection, we foster a vibrant, diverse community with shared values.
  • Located in the historic Good Shepherd Center in Meridian Park. We foster community relationships, neighborhood engagement, and place-based experiential learning.

At Meridian, we believe that an excellent education thrives in an increasingly diverse and inclusive environment. For this reason, we are committed to offering an accessible educational program for mission-appropriate students, regardless of a family’s ability to pay the full cost of tuition.
