The application process
1. Say hello
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.
3. Complete your admissions checklist
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. Reminder: due dates vary!
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.
