The NYC private school admissions process begins now for Fall 2015.  Start creating the perfect application and read my previous blog entry called What to Expect Applying to NYC Private Schools .  Reserve a spot in spring tours and schedule an appointment for an admissions consultation so you can calmly apply to independent schools and receive several acceptances at the end of the admissions process.  I manage the entire application and admissions process for my clients to ensure they meet all the deadlines and create a winning application so their child is admitted to at least one of their first choice schools.  Several NYC private schools offer spring tours for parents to see schools in April or May before they apply for admission the following fall. The Dalton School is one of the schools where I taught and interviewed applicants for admission that offers spring tours.  Friends Seminary, Hewitt School, Speyer Legacy, Ethical Culture and Fieldston Lower School, Avenues World School and Little Red School House also offer spring tours.  Start preparing  to birth the perfect application, now.

Parents like to be prepared for spring tours that happen in  April and May at several NYC private schools.  I have begun to meet with new clients for the Fall 2015 admissions cycle.  My clients know exactly what to look for when they visit schools because they have received my proprietary materials about what to look for in a school in advance.  Email me or call to schedule an appointment so you’re ready for the spring tours in April. Now is also the time for parents with children applying to schools for Fall 2015 to make a plan to prepare for the ERB standardized test.  Many NYC independent schools require the ERB standardized test to apply for admission to kindergarten – third grade.  The ISEE is the required standardized test for students applying to 5th – 11th grades.  Parents who begin preparing for standardized tests now can do it in a natural way that just involves learning through fun summer field trips and games.  Some schools such as Dalton, Ethical Culture and Fieldston Lower School only take phone reservations for spring tours.  Schools such as Friends Seminary and Little Red School House take online reservations.  See the list of schools below.
