Admissions Process

We welcome your first steps in the enrollment journey.

Use this page as a guide and note the key dates and requirements that may differ from our peer schools in NYC.

We begin considering your child’s enrollment once you’ve completed these steps (not applicable for Parent Child):

  1. Take a tour and/or attend an open house.

  2. Apply for Nursery-Grade 8; or apply for Parent Child.

  3. Send all supplemental application documents, as necessary.

  4. Complete the Financial Aid Application for tuition assistance, if needed.

  5. Wait for admissions staff to schedule play dates, interviews and class visits and attend these events as they are calendared.


Take a deserved break and join us for our magical Winter Fair, December 7th!


Applications are due Wednesday, December 11th. Financial Aid Applications are due Tuesday, January 14th. 

In February/March (dates set by ISAAGNY), we will contact you by letter.  Your steps then:

  1. Receive admission decision letter via email, including tuition assistance level, if applicable.

  2. If your child is accepted for enrollment and you intend to reserve a seat in the class, send us your non-refundable tuition deposit and affirmative response by the date stated in your acceptance letter.

  3. If your child is not accepted for enrollment, may your year be filled with learning and joy wherever your journey takes you.
