At which grades do new students typically enroll?
While the largest entry points for new students are Preschool 1, Kindergarten and Grade 4, we will enroll new students at almost any grade level. Unlike Preschool 1, Kindergarten and Grade 4 where spaces are specifically available for new students, enrollment in non-traditional entry points is based on attrition. During the 2012-2013 school year, we will enroll new students at most grade levels.
How old must my child be to enter Preschool 1, Preschool 2 or Kindergarten?
Preschool 1 students must be 3 by September 1st the year they enter school. Preschool 2 students must be 4 by September 1st. Kindergarten students must be 5 by September 1st of the year they enter Nashoba Brooks.
What can we expect from the parent visit?
The parent visit is for the parents only and will begin with a tour of campus by a Parent Tour Guide followed by a meeting with the Director of Admission. You can expect to be on campus between 1 and 1 1/2 hours.
What is the process for applying for financial aid?
Parents must submit a PFS (Parent Financial Statement) to SSS (School and Student Services), as well as complete the Nashoba Brooks Financial Aid Application. Additionally, you will also need to mail a copy of your most recent federal income tax return directly to Nashoba Brooks. You can complete the PFS online by going to sss.nais.org. Financial aid awards will be made only if the financial aid application is complete.
When will we know if our child has been accepted?
The priority application deadline is January 15th. Applicants to Preschool 1 will be notified of their decisions on February 15th. Applicants to Preschool 2 through Grade 8 will be notified of their decisions on March 10th. After March 10th, applications are reviewed on a space-available basis and decisions are given approximately two weeks after the application is complete.
