Preschool Admissions Procedures for New Students
We are thrilled you are interested in joining the Seneca Academy village! Though our students are learning in person, Seneca Academy’s campus is currently closed to the general public due to health regulations. However, we are still available to guide you through the 2021-2022 admissions process!
Seneca Academy offers a variety of class options at each age level to accommodate families’ schedules. We do not ask for any payment during the admissions process until registration, when the student has been assigned to a class.
Join us for an upcoming virtual open house! If you are unable to attend one of the virtual open houses, please contact our Director of Admissions, Priscella Celentano to set up an informational pre-admissions session via phone or Zoom.
The 2021-2022 online preschool application for new students will go live on February 8, 2021, following a one-week priority enrollment period for current Seneca Academy families. Please note that students enrolling in the 3’s program must turn 3 by September 1 of the entry year; students enrolling in the 4’s program must turn 4 by September 1 of the entry year; and students enrolling in the extended day 4’s program must turn 4 by June 1 of the entry year.
The Admissions Director will contact you to discuss next steps and finalize the admissions process. Completed applications will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee and the Committee will notify you in writing in mid-March. Students are assigned to classes on a first-come, first-placed basis.
Preschool Admissions Procedures for Current Students and Their Siblings
- Current students will receive reenrollment info in mid-January and then need to return it to the office during the priority enrollment period, February 1—5, 2021. Only current students and their siblings may register at this time.
- Students are assigned to classes on a first-come, first-placed basis. Seneca Academy will try to accommodate everyone’s first choice for all current preschool students and their siblings.
- Parents will be notified by mid-February about class placement and registration details.
New students will be notified of the date to complete registration and pay a nonrefundable $60 registration fee and a 10% tuition deposit. All new students will receive a tote bag for use at school. The first tuition payment is due in May.
