Admissions Information


We welcome your interest in Fort Lauderdale Preparatory School (FLPS). FLPS accepts students in grades Pre K-12 from both the local and international community. Our main intake of new students is at the beginning of each school year, but we are able to admit students when space is available, throughout the school year. FLPS reserves the right to exclude children whose behavior or educational needs cannot be met by the school.

Our admissions procedure is as follows:

TOUR & INTERVIEW

The first step is to contact our admissions office to arrange an appointment for student testing, a tour of the school and a student interview. Parents should bring the student’s latest report card for enrollment into grades 1-9, or an unofficial transcript and latest report card for enrollment into grades 10-12, and any reports, tests or evaluations that would assist in the admissions process. To arrange your appointment please contact the Admissions Office at (954) 485-7500 or email us at admissions@flps.com.
