What is the age requirement for entering kindergarten and preschool? Do you have a policy regarding children with summer birthdays?
- Children applying to Pre-kindergarten should be 4-years-old by September 1.
- Children applying to kindergarten should be five-years-old by September 1.
Children with summer birthdays will be considered for grade-level placement on a case-by-case basis, as we understand that each child develops at his or her individual pace.
How do I register for the SSAT? What is Galloway's SSAT code? What is the latest acceptable national test date to meet Galloway's deadline?
Registration for the SSAT is online. Galloway's school code is 3346. The February 2 standard test date is the latest date for timely delivering of scores. Find out more about SSAT at http://www.ssat.org.
Teachers involved in the observations have many years of experience with children and are sensitive to those who need to warm up in a new environment.
What is involved in the parent conversation? Do all parents have conversations? Even current families?
The parent conversation is a 20-25 minute opportunity for you to tell us more about you and your child. We request an interview with at least one parent of each applicant, even those of families with a child already enrolled at Galloway.
For families looking at Upper Learning (grades 9-11), the admissions conversation is optional and students are welcome to join.
For applications received by January 18, 2019, the fee is discounted to $85 (non-refundable).
