A letter from our Admissions Director, Dede LeComte:

Welcome! And thank you for taking the time to visit The Spire School’s website. We are here to answer your questions and help determine if Spire could be a good fit and offer the appropriate support for you (if you are a student looking at schools), or your child (if you are a parent researching options for your son or daughter). As a parent who has traveled down an unexpected path with my own child, I have great empathy for you and all of your family. It is a journey and not a race, and we hope that perhaps Spire could be a positive and constructive part.  The application/admissions process for Spire affords us the opportunity to learn about the prospective student from several perspectives. It also allows time for families to tour, ask questions, speak to current parents if they so desire in order to learn as much about Spire as possible. For Spire, as well as for our applicants, whether you are coming via a public school district, or you’ve found us on your own, it’s all about the fit and setting each student up for success.  I look forward to meeting you!  Warmly, Dede
