Academic achievement is only a small part of the picture in a child's life, and is often weighed far too heavily in school admissions offices. Rather, we focus on the child's intellectual curiosity, and creativity. To start your application, please click below.

RCN ensures that every child makes progress by identifying their
individual interests and stages of development; observing them at play and keeping documented evidence in the form of portfolios, photographs, anecdotal records, video, powerpoint presentations and other mediums.

Prior to admission, an Application Package must be completed and submitted to RCN along with a $100 non-refundable application fee. The Application Package must include a signed outdoor consent form, a signed consent form for emergency medical treatment, a list of primary and alternate pick up persons (with photo IDs,) and a tuition contract. RCN also requires 2 recent headshots of your child and a list of any allergies or special medical/physical information.
A current Department of Health medical form must be completed, signed, and dated by your child's physician and submitted with the application. Enrolled children must provide an updated medical annually.
Before starting at RCN, your child will be tested to determine his or her skill level. RCN will continue to test your child on a quarterly basis to determine his or her weaknesses and strengths as he or she moves through our program. This is not a pass/fail test; it is merely a way for RCN and parents to gauge a child’s progress.
TERMINATION OF SERVICES
Even after the 90 day probationary period ends, RCN reserves the right to terminate a child from our program when a parent fails to adhere to RCN policies.
If a child shows aggressive habits that could prove harmful to himself or others and the parent continually fails to address RCN staff concerns, the parent will be informed both in person and in writing that the child will be discharged from the program.
