In past years, The School at Columbia has given preference to children applying to kindergarten who are siblings of currently enrolled students. Given the limited number of available openings at other grade levels, and our commitment to an inclusive, open community, our policy does not extend this consideration to siblings applying to other grades at The School. Our policy has also not given preference in admissions at any grade level to the siblings of students that have graduated or left The School. The cap on siblings admitted to The School's kindergarten class in recent years has been set at 20%. Siblings not admitted will be placed on the sibling waitlist, and also entered into the neighborhood lottery or Columbia pool.
Any questions about our admissions process and policies should be addressed to our Director of Admissions and Enrollment, Rekha Puri, at 212-851-4220.
