The race is on for NYC private school kindergarten admission.

A number of schools released their applications early this year, some in mid-August.  This was a helpful move as it reduced the early September essay completion crunch, although many families have complained to me that this just extends the admissions season and eats into summer break.

It will be a tough fall, but I promise that the season moves quickly and before you know it’s February decision time.  Meanwhile, look for more and more private school applications online.
