We’re excited to get to know you and share more about our school!

  

The Virtual Experience of Tara

We strongly encourage you to attend a Tara Virtual Open House. See

As we cannot bring you to our beautiful campus at this time, take a quick tour with Tara’s enrollment coordinator on Tara’s Admissions Playlist on Youtube. You will also find testimonials from current students and Tara alumni on that page.

Starting the Conversation

Although much can be learned about Tara by reading through our website, there is so much more to say about this wonderful school! Please contact Courtney Nicoletti at admissions@tarahighschool.org or call 303-440-4510 to start the conversation.
Courtney's virtual office hours:
Monday 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Tuesday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Wednesday 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Thursday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Friday 2:00 – 4:00 pm



Completing the Application

As we begin to move from paper to electronic documentation, we have divided our application into three parts for the purposes of clarity and privacy. We recommend that you compose your answers in a separate document and paste them into the application right before submitting so that you don’t lose your work. Please submit at least the parent and student parts of the application at least 24 hours before the interview. (If current circumstances make getting teacher evaluations and recommendations difficult, go ahead and submit the application without them.)



Parent    Student    Teacher

Interview

We will schedule a 90-minute zoom interview of the prospective student and parent/guardian(s) with Betsy Barricklow (Tara co-founder & co-director), a current Tara parent and student, the enrollment coordinator and other available staff.


About Acceptance to Tara

Space permitting, Tara will consider for admission all students interested in what the school offers, eager to work hard in a challenging academic program, and willing to work socially in a group. We realize that some students are very gifted academically, others have learning challenges, and the rest fall in between. Our teachers and support staff work hard to serve this range of needs. The level of teaching is directed towards the A or A-Honors student, but all students are eligible to earn an honors-level A when their work in a given course far exceeds what is required and comes from their own motivation and talent. In working with students who have learning differences, our resources as a small independent school are limited, and any additional support a student will need to perform in Tara’s challenging academic environment will be the financial responsibility of the parents, above and beyond the regular tuition and fees.



Next Steps

Once the admissions committee has reviewed the completed application and interview, the applicant and family will receive an email with a decision from the admissions coordinator. If appropriate, a contract and all other enrollment paperwork will be sent by the business manager via Docusign.
