The application process
We follow a rolling admissions process.
How to apply
First, complete our online application.
To begin the application process, please complete our online application form at TADS, the company that handles NewGate’s admissions, financial aid, and tuition payments.
We carefully consider each application in the order of its submission. There is a non-refundable application fee of $250.00.
If your child has attended preschool or school, in addition to your application form, we will need a completed release of records form. Because school records are official documents, our office will mail your signed release form to your child’s present or former school. The application and student records release forms are available online by clicking here.
We will ask your child’s present school, or child care provider (if applicable), for copies of transcripts, previous test results, and two student recommendation forms. Because we will not be able to act on your application until this documentation has arrived, please ask that they be sent to us without delay.
Next, your child will visit one of our classes.
Applicants for the Early Childhood Programs (ages 3-6) will normally spend at least one morning with us. Children who are applying for admission at the Early Childhood level (ages 3-6) will also be given a developmental screening.
Elementary & Upper School
Applicants for the Elementary or Upper School Programs (Grades 1-12) will normally spend at least two full days with us in class. Additionally, they will be asked to complete a series of informal tests and exercises that will give us a better sense of their present level of reading comprehension, writing ability, mathematics, and cultural literacy.
After your child’s visit, we will contact you to schedule your Family Interview. Normally, our Admissions Committee will respond to admission requests within two weeks after these steps have been completed. Upon acceptance, you will have two weeks in which to return your enrollment agreement and non-refundable $750 enrollment deposit to secure your child’s space.
Contact our office at 941-922-4949 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
