The admission decision

The admission committee reviews each application thoughtfully and thoroughly. To read in-depth about admission decisions and admission philosophy, click here.
Families who completed the application process by February 15th will be notified about admission decisions during the first week of March. Families in the second round of applications (after February 15th) will be notified of a decision as soon as possible once the application is complete.
Each applicant will receive one of three decisions: a letter of acceptance, placement in the wait pool, or denial for admission. If your application is accepted, you will need to complete the online enrollment contract and deposit. The Admission Office will stay in close contact with applicants placed in the wait pool. If you receive a deny letter, then it was decided that Gordon was not a good match.
Please do not hesitate to contact anyone in the Admission Office with questions, at 401 434-3833 or

February 16th
second round admissions

We encourage families to apply for our second round of admission and to complete their files as soon as possible.
As soon as your file becomes complete, the admission committee will review your child’s application and make an admission decision of acceptance, wait pool, or non-acceptance.
Decisions will be on a rolling basis, as space and resources are available. 
Those who have been offered a place in the wait pool for second round admission have an equal chance of gaining admission as those in the first round.
Decisions are made about wait pool candidates as spaces and resources become available.
