Admissions Procedures Preschool and Kindergarten

Welcome.  Thank you for your interest in The Cathedral School Preschool.  We strive to admit families who are committed to becoming part of our community and our pursuit of excellence in education.  We look forward to meeting you soon!

 

Preschool and Kindergarten


Step 1: Visit Us

The Cathedral School Preschool and Kindergarten accept applications on a rolling basis. Open Houses begin at the end of September and we encourage you to visit us.  For inquiries and tours, please contact our Admissions Director at ecoster@cathedralschoolny.org.  Please note, students for our Prekindergarten 3s Program must be fully potty trained and 2.9 years of age by September 1, 2019.


Step 2: Apply

We invite you to fill out our Application Form and submit the $50 processing fee as soon as possible in the fall.  Once an application is received, our Admissions Director will contact you to set up a playdate and parent visit. Playdate visits begin in October and consist of time spent with a faculty member and exploration in our classroom.  Kindergarten applicants are required to submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher. Forms will be provided by our Admissions Director upon submission of application.


Step 3: Admissions Decisions

Admissions Decisions will be made once visits are completed, on a rolling basis.  We strongly recommend all applications are submitted by the end of December. Final admissions decisions will be notified in mid January with required reply within 2 weeks.


Optional Step 4: Complete Financial Aid Information

The Cathedral School requires families to submit financial aid requests through FACTS Management System.  Financial Aid applications are available beginning October 1st. To apply, visit www.FACTSmgt.com and create an account.  Please note, there is a processing fee paid to FACTS for this service. We require all financial applications for our Preschool and Kindergarten Program to be completed by January 11th.


*Any applications received after the deadline will be considered on a rolling basis if space remains in the grade.
