Step 3: Apply

Create a username and password to access the online application and upload documents. A non-refundable fee of $200 must be submitted with each application. Applications are accepted throughout the year.

Step 4: Student Visit & Assessment

Preschool applicants typically attend a Play Day and Kindergarten - 8th grade applicants schedule a Shadow Day to experience student life at Tate’s School (including lunch with new friends). Each student is assessed for academic readiness for their grade level.

Step 5: Acceptance

The Admissions team will review applications and an offer contracts beginning in February. Selections will be based on overall development, emotional maturity, academics, age, class size, and boy to girl ratios.

Step 6: Enrollment

Parents will be extended a contract offer*. When the contract is submitted and enrollment fees processed, the student will be enrolled. If your application is selected and no openings exist, then your child's file will be placed on the Waiting List. As openings occur, your file will be reviewed for placement.

* Due to the current health crisis, we encourage you to respond to a contract offer the same day if possible.
