1. Introduce yourself
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. Visit the campus
All families are invited to attend Gordon's Open House on Saturday, November 2nd at 9am. Tour the campus, attend curriculum presentations, and meet students, parents, and faculty. After Open House, continue to connect with Gordon throughout the year by coming to campus for athletic events, lectures for parents, the book fair in November, the robotics tournament in December, and the art show in January. These and more can be found on Gordon’s school calendar at gordonschool.org/calendar.
Couldn’t make it to the November Open House? A parent interview later in the admissions process can satisfy your campus visit requirement. Families with children ages two to five also have an opportunity to attend an open house for Gordon's youngest learners on Saturday, January 9th at 9am.
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, due 1/17/19
Participating in Family Individualized Tuition (FIT), due 2/1/19
Scheduling a student visit, parent interview, and tour, due 1/24/19
Obtaining school records and a teacher recommendation form, due 2/1/19
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. Admissions decisions will be communicated on February 28, 2020.
