Schedule a Virtual Tour of the Schoolhouse & Interview

After you submit your application, you will have access to the appointment calendar (available to view on September 8) to make two appointments—a virtual school tour and an online parent/guardian-only interview with a member of our Admissions team. If you wish, you may also choose to be contacted by the Admissions office to schedule these appointments. We strongly recommend that you attend the virtual school tour before your interview.


Schedule Virtual Student Assessment

A member of the Nightingale Admissions office will reach out to you to schedule. More information about scheduling the virtual assessment will be forthcoming.


Request School Records

Request that your daughter's current school send school records directly to Nightingale. For applicants to Class I, the ISAAGNY Confidential School Report Form is available on the online portal and can be sent directly to your early childhood director.
