Step 1 - Application

After submitting the application, you will receive further information about the following steps. 

Step 2 - Teacher Information Form

Your child's current preschool/daycare teacher will be asked to complete a Teacher Information Form for the year in which he or she is applying. If your child does not attend any type of school setting, or their school is closed to COVID, your Admission Counselor will provide you with an alternative form. 

It is the family's responsibility to give these forms to their child's current teacher/school. 

Step 3 - Parent Questionnaire

No one knows your child like you do! To help us better serve your child and family, parents will be asked to submit a Parent Questionnaire.

Step 4 - Admission Screening

All applicants for Kindergarten are required to participate in a developmentally appropriate screening.

Kindergarten applicants will attend a one-on-one virtual screening during which they will work with a Lower School faculty member. They will engage in a variety of activities that look at fine and gross motor skills, language skills, and basic school readiness. 

Application fees and required forms must be received prior to screenings being scheduled.
