At Greene Hill School we are looking to make the admissions process clear and to align it with other independent schools. Although the deadline for applications for the 2012-2013 school year has passed, Greene Hill School may still be accepting applications on a rolling basis. Please contact the school at (718) 230-3608 if you are interested in applying for 2012-13.
The steps to apply to Greene Hill School for 2012-13 are outlined below:
We look forward to getting to know your family over the course of the admissions process and try to be as transparent and supportive during this journey for you and your child. Understanding that tuition is often a barrier to admission in independent schools, Greene Hill School has developed a sliding scale so that families are paying for tuition in a more equal proportion with their income and finances.
Greene Hill School looks to follow the Independent School Admission Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY) guidelines for admissions. Through our admissions process, we hope to fill classes with diverse groups of individuals. When constructing a class, we attempt to find a balance with regards to gender, but also take into consideration the interests and needs of each child as an individual as well as his/her ability to harmoniously participate in the group.
Preference will be given to residents of the local neighborhood. Special consideration will be given to siblings.
Greene Hill School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies and other school administered programs.
Tours and Open Houses will be offered in the fall and while it is preferable to visit the school before applying we ask that all completed applications be submitted between September 1 and December 1. Tour and Open House dates will be posted regularly on our website. The visit will give you a better sense of our growing school and an opportunity to ask questions you may have about the school and our admissions process.
The application may be found on this website and completed online. It must be submitted with a non-refundable check for $50.00 endorsed to Greene Hill School by December 1, 2012. For families interested in a financial assessment, Greene Hill School uses an outside agency, FACTS Management, to assess the amount families have available towards their child’s education. Please complete the online process at the FACTS Management website by December 1, 2012 in order for Greene Hill School to determine the tuition amount for your child for the 2013-14 school year.
After receiving the application for your child, Greene Hill will contact you to set up a parent/gaurdian discussion and time to meet your child. If a child is enrolled in another school or camp program during the admissions process period, Greene Hill School staff may observe the child in that setting. Standardized tests such as the ERB are not considered in our application process.
The decision notification dates for the 2013/2014 are mailed or emailed by:
