Welcome to Admissions at Ethical Culture Fieldston School
When you visit ECFS you will see a progressive learning community that aspires to educate the mind and heart in ways that transform individuals. We believe you will be inspired by our school's mission, values, commitment to excellence, and, above all, its students and faculty.
We believe academic excellence can only be achieved with a population rich in intellectual, artistic, athletic, empathetic, and activist qualities, as well as diversity of ancestry, family, identity, culture, and belief. Building this community of eager and variously talented students is an honor and work to which we are deeply committed.
There are four primary entry points for our school--PreK and Kindergarten, 6th grade, and 9th grade. The school strives to make an ECFS education affordable to families from a wide range of economic circumstances and strengths. Each year, financial assistance is awarded to approximately 22 percent of our student body.
Every fall, we look forward to meeting prospective students and families and to talking with them about their educational goals. We look forward to learning about yours and can't wait to see you on campus.
