Our application is the first step for us to get to know your child as a learner. It also provides an opportunity to understand your expectations for your child’s school experience. We are accepting applications for the 2019-20 school year for pre-K through 8th grade. Please submit your application by December 31, 2018 to receive an admissions decision by February 8, 2019.
There is a non-refundable $50 application fee. If this fee presents a hardship to your family, please contact the admissions office at firstname.lastname@example.org for a waiver after you’ve started an application.
After reviewing applications, we invite families in for an interview. As part of this process, you will have the opportunity to meet with a member of our admissions team and take a tour during the school day. Your child will get to experience AltSchool in a classroom setting with our wonderful educators.
Families who submit an application by December 31, 2018 will receive an admissions decision by February 8, 2019. Enrollment agreements and deposits are due one week after admissions decisions are received. (We hope you say, “yes!”)
AltSchool is committed to diversity and inclusivity. Tuition assistance is one way we ensure AltSchool reflects the wider community. If you’re interested in applying for tuition assistance, you will receive instructions after you submit your AltSchool online application.
*Please note that we require an evaluation from your child’s current teacher for an application to be considered complete.
Children must be four years old by December 31, 2019 to enroll at our Brooklyn Heights campus for the 2019-20 school year. If your child is close to the cut-off date, we're happy to discuss a potential delayed enrollment.
Wait List: Qualified applicants whom AltSchool cannot immediately accept are placed on a wait list. Wait lists are active throughout the admissions period, and candidates are considered for acceptance if a space becomes available.
Mid-Year Transfers: AltSchool accepts mid-year transfers based on availability at each school location. Please indicate in your application if you are interested in a mid-year transfer.
