Home Student Visit
Upon receipt of your application, you will be invited to sign up for your child’s visit and assessment. All students visit Park Day, and students applying to K & 1st will also complete a video assessment, while students applying to 2nd – 8th will participate in assessments during their visit day. Assessments and visits help us observe students in a group setting, and get a sense of where students are academically/developmentally in this moment in time. These touchpoints are only one aspect of our admission process.
Students participate in a video assessment and a 30 minute group visit. At least one parent/guardian should plan to stay on campus during your child’s visit. Children meet with teachers and learning specialists while parents have the option to meet current Park Day families on the playground.
Students attend a half day of classes with a cohort of peers. Visit days take place in late January and February. We urge you to submit your application early if you have scheduling concerns.
Your child’s current teachers/school may need a gentle reminder to complete and send in the recommendation form (all applicants) and transcript (1-8 applicants) no later than the date indicated on Ravenna. Please confirm that your child’s forms have been received by Park Day be reviewing your file in Ravenna. If not, please follow-up with your child’s current teachers/school.
