for students entering Kindergarten
The following provides additional details once you have submitted the application and scheduled the Academic Assessment.
Please arrive for the assessment 5 minutes ahead of the scheduled time. Your child’s visit will begin and end in the Shepard Welcome Center (our main administration building), at 3901 E. Stanford Dr, just west of 40th Street. We will check your child's temperature; if your child's temperature exceeds 100.4°, you will be asked to reschedule their assessment. We cannot make any exceptions. After the temperature check, your child will work individually with one of our Lower School teachers who will be wearing a mask. All applicants must also wear a mask. The assessment will last approximately 25 minutes.
While parents cannot accompany their child during the assessment, we ask that parents return to their car and wait in the parking lot for the duration of the assessment. We will ask for your phone number at drop-off, and we will call you when your child has finished. Please dress your child comfortably. We will provide everything your child will need for the assessment.
