NYC Private School admissions are competitive and aggressively thorough. Parents of very young children spend an enormous amount of time preparing admissions materials for the schools that they have painstakingly researched and chosen. Parents and older students have worked together to find the best school possible and prepared for interviews and admissions essays. All of this work requires organization and diligence from both families and schools alike.
In the Private School Admission Process, January provided families a time to review their choices for private schools and ensure that all of their admissions work is up to date and as perfect as possible. This is especially important for older students who may have taken on much of the admissions responsibility themselves.
January for NYC Private School Admissions
Double check your paperwork: Review the documents that are required by your potential schools. This includes review of all the application forms, references, essays and schoolwork samples. If your older child has prepared these documents, make sure that they are neat and legible. Though it seems obvious, sequentially check to ensure that they are clearly identified with your child’s name, address and phone number.
For all admissions paperwork, remember to make copies of each and every piece of documentation. Keep these for your records. Many parents can retell the nightmare of having spent days hunting down an elusive document that was sent to a school. Don’t make the same mistake.
January is the perfect time to review your child’s NYC Private School applications and make sure you are starting the New Year up to date and prepared.
