Welcome and inquire

We are so glad you are interested in exploring Gordon School, a forward-thinking and diverse school community in East Providence, Rhode Island. At Gordon we embrace children’s innate curiosity, empowering our learners to think, question, lead, and collaborate confidently in the evolving world in which we live.

Choosing the school that is the best fit for your child and your family is a big decision. Our goal is to make your application process welcoming and straightforward. We are always available to answer your questions, talk through the process with you, and provide additional information.

A Gordon education spans the most crucial years in a child’s development, from nursery to eighth grade. By not having a high school, Gordon focuses on the particular needs of these younger students. Our graduates are well prepared to lead with an empathic spirit and a drive for positive societal impact.

The best way to get to know Gordon is to come and visit. Schedule your tour today by calling 401 434-3833 or emailing admissions@gordonschool.org. We hope to meet you soon!

Take the first steps

1. Introduce yourself
at www.gordonschool.org/inquire

If you have not already done so, complete the online inquiry form. Based on the information you provide, the Admissions Team will start an application process tailored to your family’s individual needs. You will also receive login credentials to access your personalized admissions checklist.

2. Connect with us

3. Complete your admissions checklist: due dates vary!  

Using login information provided to you after completing step 1, access your personalized checklist. This checklist outlines each step in the process including:

Submitting an application
Participating in Family Individualized Tuition (FIT)
Scheduling a student visit, parent interview, and tour
Obtaining school records and a teacher recommendation form

The earlier your checklist is complete, the better, as this will allow you to learn your Family Individualized Tuition sooner, as well as move forward through the process in a timely fashion.

4. Receive your admission decision

Gordon’s Admissions Committee reviews each application thoughtfully and thoroughly. Each applicant will receive one of three decisions: acceptance, placement in a wait pool, or denial of admission. If your child is accepted, you will need to complete the new student enrollment contract online and send a deposit to secure your child’s place in their future classroom! If your child is placed in a wait pool, the Admissions Team will contact you if your child is moved from the wait pool to acceptance. If you receive a deny letter, then it was decided that Gordon was not the right match for your child at this time. 

Important dates

Applications to Gordon are now being considered on a rolling basis through the summer. Please contact us at admissions@gordonschool.org if you have any questions about the admissions process.
