    Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten
    Children must be four years old for pre-Kindergarten and five years old for Kindergarten by September 1. All applicants will be invited to an individual screening to assess cognitive potential and skills. Based on the results of the individual screening and other elements of the application, children may be invited back for a classroom experience with faculty. The classroom time will be a mini school day with a mix of directed activities and free play to assess school readiness, developmental milestones, and skills.

    Grade 1 
    Applicants must be six years old by September 1. Applicants will take a school-based individual assessment of cognitive ability and classroom time.

    Grades 2–4 
    Applicants will take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) through school or another location (Pegasus school code 054191). Applicants in Grades 3 and 4 may be invited to participate in a virtual interview or shadow day following the assessment.

    Applicants will take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) through school or other location (Pegasus school code 054191). Applicants may be invited to participate in a virtual interview or shadow day following the assessment.

    Decisions are posted online late February through early March. Financial aid decisions are made independently of admissions decisions and will be released once the family has completed the financial aid application.

    Siblings who qualify through the admission process are given special consideration for the first available spaces in the grade level to which they apply.
