Grammar School (Pre-K, K & 1)

After completing your application online, you will be e-mailed a check-list of items that are required to complete the admissions process.  They include:

  1. Playgroup/Interview – While children meet in a small playgroup, parents tour our school with one of our Parent Ambassadors. The tour will last approximately one hour. Parents will also have the opportunity to meet with a member of the Admissions team for any further questions.
  2. School Report - Submit the “Transcript Release” form to the applicant’s current school. This form enables the school to send a current school report directly to the Admissions Office.
  3. Photo – It is recommended that you upload a photo of the applicant to our online system, though not required.
  4. Testing - After much consideration, we at CGPS have decided to follow ISAAGNY’s recommendation and no longer require ERB testing as part of our application process for Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade. Moreover, we will no longer accept or consider the results of the ECAA if a child has taken the assessment.
