Steps to Apply

Application Steps

Welcome to the Allen-Stevenson Admissions Department.

At present, all Kindergarten parent tours and interview dates, as well as boy visit dates, are filled to capacity. As a result, all Kindergarten applications received after November 30 will be placed on a waiting list. Please contact the Admissions Office with any questions.

For applications for ongoing grades, appointments are scheduled as we learn spaces will be available for the 2016-17 academic year. We have simplified our process into four easy steps:
 
1.  You may submit an application online starting September 1, 2016. If you have any questions, please call the Admissions Office at 212-606-0884.
 
2.  For submitted Kindergarten applications, we will call you to schedule two appointments. The first appointment is for your tour of the School and an interview with the Admissions Director or one of her Associates. We request that both parents visit the School. The second appointment is for your son. Applicants for Kindergarten are observed in small groups.  Parents of Kindergarten applicants who accompany their sons to the School are invited to an informal meeting with the Headmaster and the Head of the Lower School. Applicants to the First, Second, and Third Grades and Middle and Upper Schools are invited to spend some time at the School.
 
3.  Candidates for Kindergarten or Grade One are not required to take nor will we accept the Educational Records Bureau examination (ERB).  Applicants for Grades Two through Four are required to take the Educational Records Bureau examination (ERB). Applicants for Grades Five through Eight are required to take the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE). Information about testing for Grades Two through Eight is available from the Educational Records Bureau in New York City and online at http://erblearn.org/  Please be sure to ask ERB or ISEE to send the test results to Allen-Stevenson.
 
4.  To complete your son's application, please arrange to have written reports and transcripts sent to us from his present school. If your son’s school does not have the ISAAGNY form (Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York), please use the link to the appropriate form below to give to your son’s teacher to complete and return to Allen-Stevenson:

 
ONLY WHEN ALL THESE STEPS HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO COMPLETE YOUR SON'S FILE WILL WE BE ABLE TO MAKE A DECISION ABOUT HIS APPLICATION.
 
Legacy Status
We are delighted that there has been an increase of interest in Allen-Stevenson among alumni who have sons of school age. If your son is ready to apply for Kindergarten 2016, please get in touch with the Admissions Office before September.
