Each year it gives us great pleasure to welcome new families into our community.
We hope the following guidelines will help when you begin the application process in the Fall for 2020-2021 Admissions.

Your child must be two by June 1, 2020 in order to apply for our entry level Twos/Threes Class beginning in September 2020.

Applications

Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are no longer available.

Our 2020-2021 application will be available online as of September 3, 2019.
The deadline for applications is November 8th, 2019.

Open Houses

Open Houses offer an opportunity to see the facility and to hear Jean Rosenberg, Founding Director, articulate Chelsea Day School’s Mission and Program. Parents are invited to attend and may do so without having submitted an application.

We will have two Open Houses in October 2019. The dates will be posted on September 3, 2019. Due to our limited space and the number of people who would like to see the school at this time, we ask that you make a reservation online.

Lottery

We would like to meet every family that applies but because of the number of applications we receive, we hold a lottery. The lottery will determine the families who will continue on in the application process. If your application is drawn in the lottery you will be notified of the date and time of your family meeting. Family meetings will be held in November 2019 thru February 2020. Letters of notification will be mailed in accordance with dates set by the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York, (ISAAGNY). If your application is not drawn in the lottery, your application fee will be returned to you.

Thank you for your interest in Chelsea Day School and we hope to see you in the Fall.
