Step 3: Student Visits

  • Toddler – No student visit is required for admissions decisions. We invite students to visit in the spring to help acclimate them to their new school environment
  • Pre-Primary and Primary – Students with offers of admission will visit in January and again in June
  • Kindergarten- Middle School – Before enrollment decisions are made in March, K students will have an in-classroom visit for a part of the morning work cycle, LE students will visit for a whole morning, and UE-MS students will visit for an entire school day.  These visits are typically scheduled from December to February

Step 4:  Admissions Decisions

Decisions for Children’s House applicants are made by mid-December and will continue until the program is full. Elementary (K-8th grade) decisions are sent March 10 and deposits are due by April 10.

Waitlisted applications will be carried over to the following school year and applicants will not have to re-apply.
