Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Ventana School. We seek to enroll children of families who will benefit from the mission, vision, and core values of the school and who will contribute to the Ventana community through their attitudes towards fellow students, their sense of responsibility, and their active interests in learning. We are dedicated to establishing a diverse community of learners. Ventana School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious affiliation, gender, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies or admission procedures.

Admissions Process

Admissions to Ventana is a year-round, ongoing process. Through Information Nights, two Open House Saturdays, student "shadow" visits, Kindergarten Play-Groups, and attendance at our monthly Education Connection parent out reach events, our school provides prospective families many opportunities to explore our school philosophy and programs, and allows Ventana staff to get to know each family and student.
