    Please submit an Inquiry Form in order to begin your application process. 

    6-7s (First Grade) Through Seventh Grade
    Availability in the older grades is based on anticipated openings. We typically assess re-enrollment and projected availability in these grades in the winter. We encourage interested families to apply during the regular fall/winter admissions cycle so that we can complete the admissions process with you as soon as spaces open up.

    For more information about the process, please contact the Director of Admissions and Enrollment.  Families who incomes are $75,000 or less are eligible for fee waivers. Please contact the Director of Admissions and Enrollment to obtain this waiver code.
  • Submit Family Financial Worksheet

    In our tuition sliding-scale model, all families submit a confidential Family Financial Worksheet to determine their tuition/contracted fee.  This worksheet will be available to families in mid-October.

    FFWs are due by December 1, 2020 and when submitted, will be emailed to admissions@manhattancountryschool.org.

    We encourage you to contact the Director of Admissions and Enrollment with any questions regarding tuition or the FFW.
  • Family Visit

    4-5s and 5-6s (Pre-K and K)
    Virtual assessments and parent conversations will be scheduled as we receive applications (please allow up to ten business days for us to process your application). We encourage families to submit applications early in the admissions process as assessment appointments will be limited and will be available through early January only.

    6-7s (First Grade) Through Seventh Grade
    Children applying to the 6-7s through Seventh grade will be invited for a virtual assessment once we have determined whether spaces have opened in the grade of interest. The Admissions Office will reach out to applicant families if we are able to schedule a visit.
