Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in the Ethical Culture Fieldston School. Our main entry points are Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and grades 6 and 9. Admission to all other grades is based on attrition and applications for these grades are always welcome. Because openings in these grades are based solely on attrition, candidates are contacted for an interview and tour on a rolling basis throughout the year as spaces become available.

If you are interested in applying to the Lower Divisions, Pre-Kindergarten applicants must turn 4 years old by September 1 and Kindergarten applicants must turn 5 years old before September 1 of the year in which they will be entering school. Below are links to PDF documents that describe the application process in detail. We look forward to learning more about you and your family.

        **We do not require nor will we accept standardized test results for admission to Kindergarten and 1st grade. If your child is required to take standardized tests as part of their application to another school, please do not send the scores, as they will not be considered. Children applying to grades 2-4 are still required to submit ERB testing in order to complete their application.**


We are no longer accepting applications for 2015 admission for Pre-K, Kindergarten, Grades 6,7,8,9,10 and 11.

For information regarding all other grades, contact our office at 718-329-7575
