1. Our admissions process usually begins with a school visit. We offer many ways to visit our school.

2. After your visit, we welcome you to submit an application. Throughout our admissions process we observe each child to ensure appropriate placement in our early childhood program. Our application and processing fee are non-refundable.

3. Early Childhood applicants usually need to visit the school as part of the admissions process.

3. Applicants to the Grades will hear from our Faculty once we receive an application. Additionally, Grades applicants spend a few days in the classroom as part of the admissions process.

4. Our Director of Admissions will be in touch with our decision within 30 days of a submitted application.

5. Admitted students should submit tuition assistance applications.

6. We accept applications on a rolling basis after the deadline as space allows.

Please note: for those enrolling in the middle of the school year, we require a window of two weeks between acceptance and enrollment.

For Parent-Infant and Parent-Toddler Applicants

We do not require applications for Parent-Infant and Parent-Toddler. Instead, we use a simple registration process. On the other hand, we do require a complete application for our Parent-Child and our 3 or 5-day programs. Please see the Parent-Infant or Parent-Toddler pages to learn more and to register for these classes.

For Returning Students

Returning Parent-Child, Nursery, Kindergarten and Grades students do not apply for their subsequent year at PCWS. Instead, our Faculty will recommend student’s class placement before December break. We will communicate these recommendations to families no later than January.



If you have any questions about our programs or the admissions process, please contact us.

Finally, we look forward to receiving your application and meeting you and your child!
