A Coeducational School | Early Learners to Third Grade


Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Thank you for your interest in Beauvoir, a school that provides an extraordinary learning environment solely dedicated to educating the young child.  Beauvoir is committed to enrolling children in pre-kindergarten through third grade from a wide variety of family structures, as well as ethnic, racial, cultural, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
We have created an admissions process that will provide families with numerous avenues to learn about Beauvoir and to connect with our community. Beginning in September, you will have the opportunity to register for many events, including Parent/Caregiver Meetings, Tours, Information Sessions, and Receptions. We can't wait to meet you! 
Get to know us by exploring our website, as well as our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds, and discover how Beauvoir instills a lifelong love of learning in every child. We look forward to getting to know you and your family.  If you have any questions, we would be happy to answer them.

We are delighted to receive applications for siblings of current and former Beauvoir students! For current Beauvoir families interested in applying for the 2023-2024 school year, please log on to the Parent Resource Board and go to the pin titled Application and Financial Aid Process for Current Beauvoir Families.  For siblings of former Beauvoir students, we welcome your application and please contact the Admissions Office with any questions. We look forward to seeing you again!
