Getting Started

The Director serves as admissions officer and will guide you every step of the way through the process.  An application and supporting information are available by mail or download.

The Bay School admissions process is comprised of the following steps:

Meet with the Director Call the school to set up an appointment with the Director. This first conversation will include a discussion of the school’s philosophy, structure, and curriculum followed by a brief tour of the campus. This is an interview for parents or guardians only.

Complete an Application and School Records Form Applications are included in the school’s information package. Families not currently enrolled must include a $25 fee per application. For students applying to grades 1 through 8, complete a School Records Release Form. We do not administer standardized tests for admissions.

Apply for Financial Aid (optional) If you are applying for Financial Aid, please request a Financial Aid Application Package from the school’s business manager. Financial aid is available for elementary school applicants and Early Childhood applicants who are attending five mornings with at least three afternoons of Kindercare or four mornings with four afternoons of Kindercare each week.

Please contact the school’s secretary to request a financial aid package, which includes important dates and eligibility information.

Schedule a Child Visit Once the school receives your application, the Director will call you to schedule a day for your child to visit. The visit length depends on which grade you are applying for. A more detailed description of what to except during the child visit can be found in the admissions package.
