Apply to First Program
We are honored by your interest in Dalton for your young child. Our First Program, affectionately known as "Little Dalton," is a special place for children to spend their early years as Daltonians. A challenging, creative, and supportive environment embraces our youngest students, and our talented and committed faculty and staff guide and encourage them as they begin their K-12 journey.
In order to apply to Kindergarten, all children must be 5 years old by September 1st of the year they enter Kindergarten. Applications are accepted the fall prior to entry, from mid-August to mid-November. We post enrollment notifications on Ravenna
in February in accordance with the ISAAGNY timetable
All families with an interest in entry in Kindergarten should please submit an application
and follow the steps below. At this time, we do not anticipate that we will be enrolling any new students into 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade for the 2023-2024 academic year, but if you wish to express your interest for one of these currently "closed" grades, you may do so here
; upon doing so, rest assured that we will contact you in the event we are able to consider new applicants for the grade.
