How will my child find out if they are selected?

All applicants who have submitted complete applications should expect to receive notice of their application status by mail. Staff will not relay any selection information over the phone, so please do not call to obtain the status of your application. All applicants will be notified in writing so please ensure that the correct address is legible on your application. Please be mindful that there are a limited number of available positions and many applications submitted, so don’t be discouraged if you/your child do not get selected. Be ready to apply again next year!
