Please contact Tilden School as soon as possible to express your interest in applying for admissions for your child. We’ll send you admissions details at that point and will set up an informational meeting with Sarah Shearer, our incoming head of school. For more information about the application process and to apply:
Kindergarten students at Tilden need to be at least five years old by July 1 of the year they enter kindergarten. Students in subsequent grades have a corresponding age cut-off by July 1. (See Why did we set the cutoff date to July 1?)
Tilden School requires 100% immunization compliance for all students and staff. We take the health and safety of our school community, which includes highly vulnerable individuals, very seriously. Starting with the 2020-2021 school year, Tilden School will no longer accept any exemptions for required immunizations, including religious or medical exemptions. This policy was updated in 2020 after a reexamination of our policies and principles, and our commitment to being a 100% participant in the Immunity Community.
Siblings of current Tilden students have first priority for placement. Remaining spaces are allocated to families based generally on their order on the interest list.
You may request to remain on the interest list for later grades if space is not currently available; if this is the case, you must contact us each year to remain on the list and provide the name of your child and their birthdate.
Upon acceptance, we require a non-refundable two-month tuition deposit to secure your child’s place in the class.
