Admission and Costs

The information on this page is a general guideline regarding our admissions process. For more detailed information, please email the school at info@gatesandbridges.org.

Tours and Open House

Virtual parent tours are conducted, by appointment.

Families are invited to our annual “Open House” scheduled for the Saturday after President’s Day from 10am to 1pm. It’s a great opportunity to talk one-on-one with our current parents and our team. Children are welcome to attend.

Timeline for Application and Admission

To apply, children must be at least 2 years, 9 months old by the following September:

  • By the end of February: Parent tour complete and $60.00 non-refundable application with fee submitted.
  • By March 1: Attend our Open House.
  • Early March: Enrollment offers are issued. Signed contracts and a nonrefundable tuition deposit are required to secure the position.
  • After March 31: Age appropriate “late applicants” are eligible for enrollment consideration.

Admissions are made without regard to race, religion, nationality, or culture. We aim to build a community that reflects the diversity of our City’s people. Admission to the school may be influenced by age and/or gender appropriateness of the child for the specific opening. Preference is given to siblings.

Most openings occur in the Fall, but we will fill vacancies should they occur mid-year. Applications of those who have completed the parent tour and child visit are kept “active” until your child is no longer age eligible, you decline an enrollment offer, or you request removal from the wait list.
