• Student Visit & Assessment

    Upon receipt of your application, you will be invited to sign up for your child’s visit and assessment. Assessments help us observe students in a group setting and are only one aspect of our admission process. We know that being in a new place, surrounded by new people can be challenging. Our teachers and learning specialists are expertly trained to facilitate these visits.

    Don't Forget To Confirm Teacher Recommendations & Transcripts

Sign in to review your child’s application status prior to the deadline and confirm that your child’s forms have been received by Park Day.
