Submit Your Application
Once you submit your application, be sure to follow the prompts on your parent portal checklist to schedule your child’s visit and parent interview.
Your child’s 45-minute play visit will take place in one of our bright and spacious classrooms. The small play group will be led by members of our Admissions team. We ask that one parent accompany and stay with each child during these visits. Children will have the opportunity to explore materials during an open-ended play time, clean up together, listen to a story, and sing songs.
You will receive guidelines for the visit a few days prior to your scheduled date, along with a short video introducing our Admissions team in order to help your child feel more comfortable before coming into the school.
After you have submitted your admissions application, you will have an opportunity to take an hour-long tour and experience Bank Street during a typical school day.
A member of the Admissions team will conduct a virtual parent interview to get to know your family, understand what you are looking for in a school, and answer any questions you may have about Bank Street and the admissions process. Parent interviews take place at least two days after the child’s visit so that interviewers can share observations from the child’s play visit.
Confidential School Report
If your child attends an early childhood program, the ISAAGNY Confidential School Report (pdf) must be completed by your child’s teacher and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 11, 2024. Your child’s current school may require the submission of the Permission to Release Student Information Form (pdf) prior to sending the ISAAGNY Confidential School Report.
There is no financial aid available for the 3/4s. Only families with children entering the 4/5s or above may apply for financial aid.
