Re-enrollment 2022-23

It’s time to make plans for Summer and Fall!
All Raintree Students • Re-enrollment Period
(This Includes Camp Raintree for Elementary Students)

 

Note: Elementary and Erdkinder acceptance letters will be mailed in April.

Re-enrollment begins February 4th for ALL students currently enrolled at Raintree.

This pertains to ALL current toddler, primary, elementary, and 7th-year erdkinder students.

Re-enrollment is the time when families indicate their intentions for the upcoming school year. Parents of children currently enrolled in primary will also indicate their summer enrollment. Parents of elementary students will have the first opportunity to enroll in Raintree Summer Camp. The re-enrollment form will be available online from February 4th through February 14th.

No payment is required unless you are applying for the next program (primary to elementary or elementary to erdkinder), BUT only those students re-enrolled by the February 14th deadline will have priority over other families on our waiting lists.

Tuition rates for the coming school year are posted online under “Enrollment Information” > “Tuition Information.” A tentative list of 2022-23 school year dates and events can be found under “Calendar.”

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY (There are 3 Steps)

STEP 1: Complete the re-enrollment form online by February 14th. ALL students currently enrolled at Raintree must complete this step. (Only parents of current 8th-years need not complete re-enrollment.)

Re-enrollment forms are divided into “Toddler and Primary Re-enrollment” and “Elementary and Erdkinder Re-enrollment.” If you have more than one child in the toddler/primary, or more than one in elementary/Erdkinder, you will need to complete the form for each child.

Camp applications (summer camp for elementary students – June and July months):

If your child is a Raintree elementary student, and you are interested in Camp Raintree, you may register online. The camp application link is below. You may also use this form if you have a child who does not attend Raintree, but meets all of the following criteria:

  • Meets the age requirements (youngest completed first grade and oldest completed no higher than fifth grade).
  • Is enrolled in Tuition Express.

If your child is beginning their primary experience from a toddler community, you will receive a personal invitation to your child’s classroom orientation. If your child is beginning their elementary experience as a first year, they will have a chance to meet all lower elementary teachers and walk through a lower elementary classroom during the school day in the spring. In the summer, your child will be assigned a classroom and you will be invited to an open house and orientation before the start of school in the fall. If your child is beginning the Erdkinder program, you and your child will receive an invitation to schedule a conference before the start of school.
