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.
