    The deadline for scheduling the parent tour and interview is 4:00 pm on December 9, 2024.
  • 3. Kindergarten Applicant Visit

    We look forward to meeting your daughter! Along with a small group of applicants, she will enjoy familiar school activities during her 45 minute school visit. The Office of Admission will schedule the date and time of your daughter's visit on a rolling basis as applications are processed. You will be given approximately two weeks notice. A parent is not required to attend; a caregiver or family member may bring the applicant to her visit as there is no parent programming.
  • 4. Permission to Release Confidential School Report Form

    Please submit the Permission to Release Confidential School Report Form to your daughter's current school via Ravenna Hub. Her school will send us a confidential school report using the Brearley Kindergarten Confidential School Report Form or the ISAAGNY Confidential School Report Form; both forms are accepted.

    The school report form must be received no later than 4:00 pm on January 13, 2025 for your application to be considered complete.
