Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in the Ethical Culture Fieldston School. Our main entry points are grades Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 6 and 9. Admission to all other grades is based on attrition and applications for these grades are always welcome. Since openings in these grades are solely based 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 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 are no longer accepting Pre-K, Kindergarten, Grade 6 and 9 applications for 2014 admission.

Applicants can track the status of their application here.

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

The deadline for submitting an application was November 1, 2013 at 5:00PM.
