Application Process

 

List of 8 items.

  • + Submit your Application Form and Fee

    Submit your online application, including the $50 non-refundable application fee, by December 8, 2023. If fees for your application present a hardship for your family, please contact our Director of Financial Aid, Amy deBorst.
  • + Complete the Parent/Guardian Questionnaire

    The Admission Committee is interested in learning more about your child and family, and understanding what brought you to Greenhill. Please complete this form by December 8, 2023.
  • + Schedule your Parent/Guardian Meeting

    These meetings are for families who are applying to Greenhill for the first time to prekindergarten – first grade only. This meeting is an opportunity for us to learn a bit more about your child and family and it provides an opportunity for parents/guardians to ask questions of a member of the Greenhill staff. Meetings will be conducted in person unless parents/guardians request a virtual meeting. They typically last 20-30 minutes and involve only the parent(s)/guardian(s). Again, we are not able to conduct parent meetings for parents of children who are re-applying to Greenhill.

    To select a meeting day and time, please register using the Parent/Guardian Meeting calendar in your checklist after applying.
  • + Register with Collaborative Academic Testing Services (CATS)

    Applicants for Prekindergarten through first grade must complete CATS testing. Please register online directly with CATS here. We encourage you to register early. Test results can be shared with other schools where the child is applying. The cost of this test is $325, and it is not included in the Greenhill application fee. Please contact CATS directly if inquiring about a reduced fee. They will require proof that you have applied to Greenhill, so please be prepared to send them the confirmation email you received when you applied.
  • + Schedule a Preschool Admission Observation

    All applicants to prekindergarten and kindergarten participate in observation at Greenhill. Comprised of both group and one-on-one elements, observations last approximately one hour and will take place in December and January. Observations will be scheduled later in the fall.
  • + Request Progress Reports/School Records

    Once you have submitted your Application Form and after December 1, you will have access to the Transcript/Grades/Progress Reports request within your parent portal checklist. The request form will not be accessible before December 1 to ensure that the request is not made to the school too early. We want to have records that include the most up-to-date progress reports prior to our January 26, 2024, deadline.

    The request form will ask for the name and email address of the person at your child’s current school who is responsible for sending transcripts, grades, or progress reports. They will receive an email that contains a link to submit the documents directly to Greenhill. If your school or daycare does not have school records, they can indicate that when they open the request link. If you note on your application that your child is not currently enrolled in a school program, we understand that you will not have records to submit.
  • + Request a Teacher Evaluation

    Once you have submitted your Application Form and after December 1, you will have access to the Teacher Evaluation request within your parent portal checklist. The request form will not be accessible before December 1 to ensure that the request is not made to the teacher before they have time to get to know your child. You will be asked to enter your child’s teacher’s name and email address on the request form and they will receive an electronic, confidential Teacher Evaluation Form to complete and submit.

    Even if your child is in a day care setting, we would like their teacher to complete the form. The teacher will be able to fill out the form electronically and send it back to us within our system. It is a good idea to let the teacher know ahead of time to expect the request. The deadline for the receipt of the confidential form by Greenhill School is January 26, 2024. If you note on your application that your child is not currently enrolled in a school program, we understand that you will not have records to submit.
  • + Apply for Financial Aid (Optional)

    If you are considering applying for financial aid, please indicate that by completing the Financial Aid Form in the “Optional Steps” section of your application checklist in the parent portal. You must complete the full Financial Aid Application by February 15, 2024. Families of admitted students who apply by the deadline will receive their financial aid grant at the same time as their admission decision, on March 8, 2024.

    While we are able to accept Financial Aid applications after the deadline, we can not guarantee that funds will remain available. If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact Director of Financial Aid Amy deBorst at 972-628-5522.
