As soon as we receive the online application, the admissions office will contact you within two weeks of submission to schedule interviews for you and your daughter. We will begin to schedule appointments the day after Labor Day. Parents of applicants for Kindergarten will be asked to schedule a parent-only tour and interview. Girls who are applying for Kindergarten will be asked to attend a playgroup at Nightingale.
Middle and Upper School applicants will tour the school with their parents and have an interview with a member of the admissions office. Candidates will return for placement work in math and English.
Request that your daughter's current school send school records directly to Nightingale. Click here to download the Request for School Records Form. Please submit this form to your daughter's school's staff so that THEY may send us her school report with this form attached to the official transcripts.
