The admission process is designed to enable prospective parents and children to get to know the school, and the school to get to know new families. We work with parents in the admissions process to discover whether Parker School will be the best match for both the child and school.
- The admission process begins with a parent visit. Parents can attend an Open House or Visit Day, or schedule a private visit by calling the Admission Office.
- Interested families then submit an application and application fee. (Download an application form at right.)
- The next step is a child visit to the school. Call the Admission Office to schedule the visit. Pre-K children spend about 30 minutes in a classroom with parents close by. Older children typically visit for a full school day.
- Next, you will submit a Records Release to your child’s current school to allow them to directly send us copies of progress reports and school records. You will give a Recommendation form to your child’s current teacher, and he or she will send it back to us.
- Once all admission elements are completed (parent visit, application, child visit, records, recommendation), the Admission Committee will consider the application and notify parents of its recommendation with a phone call and letter.
To arrange a visit and request an admission packet, please call or email:
