I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about Curtis School and our admissions process. Curtis is a community of happy children, enthusiastic teachers, supportive administrators and staff, and active parent volunteers. Working together in a warm, nurturing environment, we pursue our educational goal of "a sound mind in a sound body governed by a compassionate heart."
Applications for admission to the 2020-21 school year will be available on this website beginning September 3, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. We accept the first 200 returned applications into the applicant pool for Developmental Kindergarten and Kindergarten. The deadline to submit an application for grades 1-6 is prior to December 1, 2019. DK and Kindergarten applicants will visit us in January or February for a short individual session with a member of our faculty. Students applying for grades 1-6 will come for a group visit on February 8, 2020.
"Working together in a warm, nurturing environment, we pursue our educational mission of a sound mind in a sound body governed by a compassionate heart."
All applicants must submit recommendations from their previous school(s) and one personal family reference. After submitting an application, parents are asked to call to schedule a tour of the campus and an interview. This allows time to see and learn more about Curtis and to share information in a relaxed atmosphere.
If you need additional information, please don't hesitate to contact me.
