Looking for a New Private School for the Fall?

School plans change, especially with the end of the academic year. With summer approaching, it can provide the final impetus toward the conclusion that “it’s time to look for a different school.”

As a parent, you might seek greater academic challenge, academic support, a particular opportunity, or, program, a learning differences program, or even a values-driven perspective like a school connected to a religious denomination.

No matter your motivations, the most important guiding principle of your admission process must be school fit. You want to find the school environment (practices and programs) that will grow your child most effectively.

In our e-book Applying To Private School After The Deadline, I suggest your begin with these considerations.

  • Can we, as a family work through this process successfully and comfortably on our own?
  • Can we reasonably complete each step and will we have enough information to make good decisions?
  • Do we have time to learn about each school?
  • Can we build a complete picture of our child quickly?
  • How can we focus on schools that will be appropriate places for our child?

You’ll need to pay particular attention to two pieces of the compressed admission timetable:

Standardized Testing: check with each school to see what testing they require of their applicants. You might need to schedule a flexible administration of a particular test.

Financial Aid (FA): it is an incredibly limited resource outside of the traditional admission calendar. If FA is part of your application process, you need to check with each school as to whether, or not, any financial aid is available at this time.

If you need help finding a school for this Fall, consider the services of an educational consultant or enroll in our online course to help guide you through the process.
