  • 3. PERMISSION TO RELEASE RECORDS

    Submit the "Permission to Release Records" form to your daughter's preschool. The preschool will send us a written report on the form used by the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). If your daughter's school does not belong to ISAAGNY, please also submit the "Confidential School Report" form directly to the school.

  • 4. IMPORTANT REMINDERS

    • Applicants to Kindergarten must be five years old by September 1 of the year they enter.
    • Check the Admission Calendar for all important deadlines.
    • Standardized testing is not required for admission to Kindergarten. If your child takes a standardized test such as the ECAA or the Stanford-Binet for her application to another school, please do not submit the scores to us, as they will not be considered.
    • Families requesting financial assistance should check the appropriate box on the application. Please adhere strictly to all filing deadlines. 
    • We do not invite or encourage letters of recommendation.
