Second, Third and Fourth Grade children must be seven, eight and nine years old respectively by September 30 in the year they start school. Spaces for new Lower School students in Grades 2-4 are based only on attrition and are very limited. We process applications for those limited places on a rolling basis. We recommend submitting your application and your child’s 2015-16 school record as soon as possible. If we are able to consider your application, we will contact you to schedule a visiting day and parent interview.
Create a Ravenna profile. You’ll use Ravenna to register for a school tour, complete your online application (including the Parent Supplement) and to submit all supplemental materials. Required materials include the Teacher Evaluation for Grades 2-4 and transcripts.
Schedule a testing date with the Educational Records Bureau (ERB). Brooklyn Friends requires the ECAA for admission. Be sure to list Brooklyn Friends School (#330610) as a test result recipient.
Wait to hear from us. If we are able to consider your application, we will contact you to schedule a classroom visit and interview. You will be asked to submit the non-refundable $100 application fee at that time. Please contact us for information about need-based fee waivers or reductions.
