The Pegasus School is now accepting applications to the waiting list for 2021/2022. Due to the current COVID-19 conditions, our admissions process is virtual to ensure the health and safety of our community and our prospective families. Although we have students attending class in person, we are not able to host external visitors on campus. We have worked hard to create a robust virtual process that will allow us to get to know you as well as introduce you to our community. Please check out our virtual tour and admissions webinar recordings. In order to stay updated, you may also fill in the inquiry form or check back on this page as we add milestones and events to our calendar.

List of 4 items.

  • STEP 1: INQUIRE AND VISIT

    We encourage parents of prospective applicants to complete an Inquiry Form.

    As we are not able to host visitors on campus at this time, we invite you to explore our 360 virtual tour. We also invite you to call us at any time with further questions or if you would like to schedule a zoom meeting.
     
    The first round of applications are due January 13 and decisions will be posted late February/early March. However, we support a rolling admission policy and continue to accept applications for the waiting list after this date for any remaining available spaces.

    Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Process
     
    Pre-Kindergarten: Children must be four years old and fully toilet trained by September 1. Screening involves faculty getting to know children using directed activities, cognitive skills, and free play.

    Kindergarten:
    Applicants must be five years old by September 1. Faculty will be assessing developmental milestones and skills that are standard in most all preschools. 

    First- through Fourth-Grade Process
    First Grade applicants must be six years old by September 1. Applicants in First Grade will take a school based assessment and applicants for Second through Fourth Grade will be interviewed and take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) Pegasus school code 054191), a formal assessment of cognitive ability after which decisions will be made.

    Fifth- through Eighth-Grade Process
    Applicants will be interviewed and take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) through school or at a Prometrics Test Center Location (Pegasus school code 054191). Applicants for Middle School are also required to take the Character Skills Snapshot. Character and personal growth are an integral part of a Pegasus education. Grades and test scores just don't tell us the whole story of your child. The Character Skills Snapshot gives us richer holistic information and illuminates areas where The Pegasus School can help your child grow and thrive. Based on review of all applicants by the admission committee, applicants that appear to be qualified are invited to interview. Final decisions will then be made.
  • STEP 4: DECISIONS

    Decisions are posted online late February through early March. 

    The Pegasus School encourages applications from siblings of currently enrolled families. Siblings who qualify through the admission process are given special consideration for the first available spaces in the grade level to which they apply. 
     
    While we would like all children of affiliated families to be able to attend The Pegasus School, it may indeed not be the most appropriate match for every child. In such instances, families are encouraged to meet with the Director of Admissions and Enrollment for clarification.

    We support a rolling admission policy for any remaining available spaces.
