Early Decision

The early decision program is intended for families of two, three, and four-year-old applicants who know that MMS is their first choice school. This includes just sibling and legacy students and children of faculty. If your family chooses to take advantage of the early decision program, please submit an application by December 1. If accepted, deposits will be due at the time of acceptance. If you do not want to take part in the early decision program, the regular acceptance notifications will be released according to the ISAAGNY calendar to the right. Financial aid applicants are not eligible to participate in the early decision program.

If you’re currently based outside of the United States, please see our page for international families, which includes information for applicants who are not able to visit the school.

ERB Testing

We require a test report from the Educational Records Bureau for applicants to Grade 2 and higher. For more information, and to schedule a test date, go to the bureau’s online registration portal or call 212-672-9800. Reports are not ready until 6 to 8 weeks after the test date, so it is a good idea to schedule the appointment for early fall.
