  • STEP 3: ASSESSMENT

    Decisions are based on matching applicants with the school's mission and philosophy. 

    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 cognitive ability and developmental milestones and skills that are standard in most 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 of cognitive ability and applicants for second through fourth grade will take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) through school or another location (Pegasus school code 054191). Applicants in third and fourth grade may be invited to participate in a virtual interview following the assessment.

    Fifth through Eighth Grade Process
    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 following the assessment.
  • STEP 4: DECISIONS

    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.

    The Pegasus School may 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.
