Kindergarten Application Process

Submit Online Application

Please create an account and apply online through Ravenna, our admissions database. Our application will open September 1st and close on December 1st.

Attend an Open House

We anticipate that all group of our events will continue to be held virtually again this year. However, as long as COVID-19 numbers remain low, our plan is to tour families in person after decisions are released in February. We will be hosting a number of virtual events this season so that you can better understand our community, faculty and curriculum. This will include Lower School Open Houses where you will have the opportunity to meet our leadership and also to take a virtual tour with the Admissions team. To sign up for an Open House, please visit our Virtual Admissions Events page.

Schedule Parent Interview and Individual Child Assessment

We will continue to conduct interviews virtually. Once you have submitted an application, you will be able to schedule your appointments via Ravenna.

Submit ISAAGNY Confidential School Report

We ask Kindergarten applicants to submit the Independent School Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY) confidential school report. However, if your child is not currently enrolled in a preschool program this year, please contact our Admissions office to discuss alternative options. The ISAAGNY report is to be given to your child’s current school and must be submitted directly from their school to ours. If your child presently attends an ISAAGNY school, they can supply you with the form. It can also be downloaded from this page.

Application Forms

Please note: The applicant family is responsible for confirming the application is complete. The Admissions Office will not review incomplete applications.
