Grades 1-8


Applying for kindergarten

To begin the application process for Junior or Senior Kindergarten, please fill out the Online Inquiry Form or contact the School Admissions Office at 773 327-0900. An introductory packet, which includes an application, tuition and fee schedule, and a brochure containing further information about the School, will be sent to you. Once the School has received the completed application form and the $75 application fee, a member of the Admissions Office will contact you to schedule a private visit and tour of the campus.

Children must be four-years-old by September 1 of the year they enter Junior Kindergarten or five-years-old by September 1 of the year they enter Senior Kindergarten.

Applications for Junior and Senior Kindergarten are accepted during the summer and fall months of the year preceding the child's anticipated entrance into school.

In addition to the parent visit and tour, each child will be invited to attend a “play party” on a Saturday morning between January and March. At the Play Party, children will have the opportunity to interact with the kindergarten teachers and other youngsters of their age in a classroom environment. You will receive a letter providing the date, time, and details of your scheduled play party in the late fall.

Families are notified of the School's admissions decisions by mail in March.

We appreciate your interest in our School. If you have any questions about the School's admissions process, please feel free to contact the Admissions Office at 773 327-0900.
