Application Review

Once we receive your application, our staff will review it – if we have an opening for your child, we will contact you regarding their acceptance. If the class is currently full, you will be placed on the waiting list – and newly opened spots will be filled from the waiting list.


Enrollment Contract

When your child is accepted to IMS, you will receive an acceptance letter along with our enrollment contract. To secure enrollment, you need to return the signed contract, as well as the $200.00 tuition deposit by the due date listed on your acceptance letter.
