Early Education Application

Welcome, future students and families!

Admissions Process

1. Complete online application. 

If you prefer a print application, click here to download, and mail completed form to:

Distelrath Farms
Attn: Selection Committee
6302 E. Raymond St.
Indianapolis, IN 46203

2. Schedule an enrollment meeting with Distelrath administrators and staff. 

Upon receipt of your application, a Distelrath administrator will be in touch to schedule your meeting, which will include a tour of our school and a discussion of your family's educational goals for the academic year. 

3. Submit $50 application fee. 

Our school requires that all families pay a $50 non-refundable application fee to reserve their child's spot at our school. If our school program is full, this fee will place your child on our waiting list for up to two academic quarters. 

Regardless of application fee, our school will give preference to full-time students. This means that a full-time student who applies after a part-time student may be placed one slot above a part-time student on our wait list. 

4. Return your enrollment packet and start your first day of school! 

If you have questions about our admissions process, please feel free to contact a Distelrath administrator here


Look forward to seeing you at our school!
