Thank you for your interest in The Dalton School's First Program! We hope you have the chance to browse through our website for information about Dalton. Our comprehensive, interactive school viewbook
is another great source of information about our school.
We are delighted that you are thinking about applying! In order to apply to Kindergarten, all children must be 5 years old by September 1st, the year that they would be entering Kindergarten. We are all striving to limit the spread of COVID-19 in order to keep you and our community safe and healthy. For that reason, all aspects of our process will be virtual this year.
The four requirements
for completing the admissions process are listed below. All requirements must be completed to receive an admissions decision from Dalton in February. Please read through all of our instructions on "HOW TO APPLY"
as well as our "RECOMMENDED TIMETABLE"
to make sure you are thoroughly aware of Dalton's admissions process as each school's process is unique to them and may have different requirements and deadline dates.
Many ISAAGNY schools have joined together to create and administer a non-standarized assessment (The Thinking and Engaging Activities Assessment
) that your child is required to take one time during the admissions season. Please refer to the "T&E"
for important information and instructions and a list of participating schools. You must first submit an application, and then after Labor Day, you may schedule the T&E Assessment.
Remember: you only need to sign up ONCE for the T&E Assessment.
