Our application process begins in August, a year before a family would like to enroll a child at The School at Columbia University. Because of our unique program, we have a somewhat different application process for families affiliated with Columbia University and neighborhood families not affiliated with the University. Kindly read more about the details of both application processes.
The School at Columbia follows the New York City Public School’s calendar for birthday cutoffs. Students applying to Kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year must turn five by December 31, 2019. We do not require any educational testing (ERB, etc.) for admission, nor do we have an application fee.
