Getting Started

Please read through the information below to begin the application process of applying to Tempo. We are excited about your interest in our school and encourage you to contact our Head of Schools with any questions you may have.

 

 

Application

To get started, please download the Application Form and the Fees document. 

The application form may be filled out on a computer and then printed or printed and then filled out by hand. Please remember to sign and date the application before returning it to the school.

Each year, Tempo receives applications from more students than we can accommodate so we recommend sending your child’s application as soon as possible. Most students join the school in kindergarten. Applications to kindergarten should be submitted to the school during the academic year before the child is to enter the school. Interviews and admission decisions are usually made in February. Students who would like to join the school after kindergarten should use the same form.

The Fees document outlines the annual tuition fees and the different payment options available to you. We look forward to meeting you and your child at Tempo.
