CLASSROOM OBSERVATION OR STUDENT VISIT
Applying for Kindergarten
Prospective students will be observed at their current preschool by the Seven Arrows Director of Enrollment Management. The Admissions Office will make arrangements directly with the preschool to conduct a discrete observation while normal activities occur. These observations are scheduled in January and February, typically last 30-45 minutes, and do not involve any interaction with the prospective student. For out-of-state applicants, we will be conducting virtual game days so that the child may be observed by the enrollment team.
Applying for Grades 1-6
Prospective students will participate in a hybrid visit model. Online academic assessment tools will be administered via zoom coupled with an in-person visit primarily focused on reading, writing, and social-emotional. Visits vary in times and are scheduled for January and February of 2021. The Admissions Office will contact families after the application deadline to schedule these admission-critical activities. For out-of-state applicants, we will be conducting virtual game days so that the child may be observed by the enrollment team.
Parents will meet virtually with the Enrollment Team for a conversation about their prospective student, the family’s educational goals, and to ask any questions they may have about Seven Arrows. These conversations typically last 30-45 minutes and take place after the application deadline. Parents will schedule this appointment from within the Admission Portal.
FOR SIBLING FAMILIES
Seven Arrows understands the value and benefits of having all siblings attend the same school and we make all reasonable efforts to accommodate families in this way. However, we must ensure that all admitted students can successfully navigate the demands of our program. In order to start the conversation about the sibling as early as possible, we ask siblings to complete the application by October 1st.
Seven Arrows accepts applications from prospective families for the current school year and late applications. However, whether or not these applications move forward is based on attrition and available spaces. Please contact the Admissions Office before applying.
