January – March 2019: All children will be required to visit in one of our age appropriate classrooms.  Preschool and Kindergarten applicants will visit for one to two hours on a scheduled date and will be observed by our Early Childhood Director.  Parents will be allowed to stay in the room as we want to be respectful of what is best for each child.  Grade school applicants participate in a “shadow day”, students will visit for the entire school day. Parents will have the opportunity to meet with either the Principal or Director of Student Services on that date.  We request transcripts, report cards and recommendations for children applying into the Grade School.

Contact a Parent Ambassador: During your application process we feel it’s best for prospective parents to have the opportunity to connect with current parents to have a true sense of the Akiba-Schechter experience.  Contact Yelena Specto to be connected with a Parent Ambassador.
