Dates to Remember for Interested Families Fall 2020

Important Update: Due to school closures related to the Coronavirus pandemic we have canceled our last informational tour, extended our open application period, and pushed back our lottery.  We will be live streaming our lottery instead of holding it on site.

All documentation for proof of preference can be emailed to enrollment@sdgva.net.  If you are unable to email the documentation please still contact us at enrollment@sdgva.net so we can discuss other possible options.

If you are interested in applying to the school at this time you may still do so, but will be placed on our waitlist until a space becomes available.
