Model Laboratory School offers tuition-supported enrollment to students in Pre-K – Grade 12 through an admissions process, designed to promote fairness and non-discrimination. Offers of acceptance into Model Lab School are based on the date the application was received, with limited exception. There are separate applications for Pre-K and Model Lab School K-12, so parents may elect to apply to both.

- Application for admission to Model Laboratory Pre-K may be made at any time following a child’s second birthday.
- A student must be four years of age by August 1st of the enrollment year to enter the Model Laboratory pre-K program. (Acceptance into pre-K does not secure a seat for kindergarten.)
Application Process K-12
- Application for admission to kindergarten through grade 12 at Model Laboratory may be made at any time following a child’s second birthday.
- Acceptance into Model Laboratory Pre-K does not secure a seat for Model Laboratory kindergarten. Admission and acceptance for the Model Laboratory kindergarten program is required. A student must be five years of age by August 1st of the enrollment year to enter the kindergarten program.
