Admission Process

Thank you for your interest in The Schenck School.  We are currently accepting applications for Kindergarten for the 2017-2018 academic year.

PLEASE NOTE:
Unfortunately, at this point in our admissions season, we have received a record number for 1st grade through 5th grade and can no longer accept applications for these grades.  If you are interested in obtaining more information to assist you in better understanding your child’s learning profile and gaining assistance with future educational planning, please click here. Families with a completed psychoeducational evaluation may request a consultation with our trained educational professionals.  Our specialists will conduct a thorough review of your child’s testing and meet with you to discuss our thoughts, observations, and recommendations for next steps.

The Admission Process

  1. Parent submits completed online application and $85 application fee (payable by electronic check or credit card).
  2. Parent submits required documents and evaluations and has the student’s current school complete and submit the required teacher/administrator evaluations and transcripts.  Parents submit a current psychoeducational evaluation and an unassisted writing sample.
  3. The Admissions Committee reviews completed application. Only appropriate candidates for enrollment for The Schenck School are screened.
  4. Screening of appropriate student is set and completed by the Office of Admissions. Screening will include standardized, diagnostic testing and age appropriate tasks focusing on reading, writing, and spelling. This evaluation will take approximately an hour to an hour-and-a-half, depending upon the age of the child. A parent interview will take place as well. Both parents are encouraged to attend. A fee of $150 will be charged for this screening.
  5. A letter indicating results of the screening will be sent to the parents within one month of the evaluation.
  6. Notification of the Admissions Committee’s decision is made on an individual basis and upon availability for the following school year. Decisions are made throughout the year with final decisions made by mid-April.
