Step One: Online Application

The application for the 2018-2019 school year is now available.

Step Two: Parent Tour

Tours are exclusively for those families who have filled out an application. The tour is designed to provide applicants with a small, inside perspective on our school. You will meet the Head of School, Director of Admissions, students, and have an opportunity to observe a class in each of our programs. Small group tours are scheduled throughout the fall and winter. All tours begin at 9:15 am and end at 10:30 am

Step Three: Child Visit

Children who are applying to our Elementary Program are invited for to visit the classroom for a portion of the school day. These visits are scheduled in January.

Step Five: ERB Testing

We require a test report from the Educational Records Bureau for applicants to Grade 2 and higher by January 20, 2017. 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.
