Dear Prospective Families,

Thank you for your interest in Antilles School! On behalf of the Admission Team I invite you to explore our website for an overview.  As you consider the important investment of an independent school education for your child, we are available to guide you and your child through our admission process.

The first step is to provide us with your contact information so that we can keep in touch and help you learn more about Antilles. 

We also encourage you to read the latest edition of our online community newsletter, Currents, for additional information about our academic program and student life at Antilles. 

Identifying the school that is the best fit for your child, one that will provide the best intellectual, emotional, artistic, and athletic growth, can be a challenging task. We look forward to helping you navigate this process. Please do not hesitate to contact us we strive to make every family’s experience as personal and stress-free as possible.

We look forward to meeting you!

Shannon Harris, Head of School
