Please complete the following steps to apply for preschool or kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year:
- Schedule a parent tour & conversation
- Submit the online application forms
- Submit an online request for a teacher evaluation
- Plan for your child to participate in a student visit
An individual tour of the campus including classroom observations, and a conversation with an admission officer. To avoid disruption to our current students, we ask that these tours be attended by adults only.
Available September through early February; schedule a tour through your Ravenna admission account.
The online application includes a series of questions for parents. This is your best opportunity to share information about your family. All applications will be read by the admission committee.
Send the online evaluation form to your child's current teacher through your Ravenna admission account. Please do not send this request until after November 1, 2016; this will allow the teacher time to get to know your child. It's a good idea to have the teacher's full name and email available when you are ready to send the evaluation.
February 3-4, 2017: Kindergarten
February 10-11, 2017: Preschool
Applicants who have completed the application for admission by the final deadline will be invited to participate in a student visit.
Shortly after the regular fee application deadline, we will email you with the details of your child's visit, including their assigned date and one-hour time slot.
During the visit children will join approximately 10 other applicants and spend time in a classroom doing a variety of activities. It is an opportunity for teachers to observe and interact with each applicant in our environment. We realize this can be a particularly worrying part of the admission process. We work hard to ensure students have fun during their visit.
