Each year it gives us great pleasure to welcome new families into our community.
We hope the following guidelines will help when you begin the application process in the Fall.

We would like to meet every family that applies to Chelsea Day School but because of the number of applications we receive, we hold a lottery. The lottery will determine the families who will continue on in the application process.
If your application is drawn in the lottery you will be notified of the date and time of your family meeting. Family meetings will be held in November 2013 thru February 2014. Letters of notification will be mailed in February 2014, in accordance with dates set by the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York, (ISAAGNY)
If your application is not drawn in the lottery, your application fee will be returned to you.
Thank you for your interest in Chelsea Day School.
