Avenues School just announced today that they are accepting applications for their Early Admissions Program from March 27th- May 25th. Fascinatingly, this year they are running the program only for 3 year olds and 2nd – 10th grade applicants. Last year prekindergarten and kindergarten applicants also could apply early.
This suggests to me that Avenues admissions people feel confident they can fill their prekindergarten and kindergarten classes without resorting to the program. Note that 2012 kindergarteners will be moving on to 1st grade in 2013, hence why 1st grade is also not included.
I can’t wait to hear how the opening months go at Avenues.
