Applying to Nightingale is easy
On her first day at Nightingale, a kindergartener is welcomed by the head of school in front of the iconic blue doors, and a senior takes her hand to walk alongside her to the classroom. This special moment of connection marks the beginning of a student’s educational adventure as a valued member of the Nightingale community.

Kindergarten applicants during the 2023-2024 admissions season for the 2024-2025 academic year must be five years old by September 1, 2024.
Schedule Student Assessment and Schoolhouse Tour
After you submit your application, you will have access to the appointment calendar to schedule a time for your daughter to come visit in person for a group assessment, and for you to take a tour of the Schoolhouse with a current parent. We will send along more information about the student assessment after you schedule your appointment.
Schedule Virtual OR In-Person Parent/Guardian Interview
After you submit your application, you will have access to the appointment calendar to make an appointment for a virtual parent/guardian interview or an in-person parent/guardian interview (on a separate date which will require a second visit to the Schoolhouse) with a member of our admissions team. It may be helpful for you to schedule the interview appointment to happen after the Schoolhouse tour and assessment, but it is not required.
Request School Records
Request that your daughter's current school send school records directly to Nightingale. For applicants to Kindergarten, the ISAAGNY Confidential School Report Form is available on the online portal and can be sent directly to your early childhood director.
Register for Our Admissions Events
The events are an excellent opportunity for prospective parents/guardians to learn about Nightingale by asking questions and engaging in dialogue with key faculty, administration, students, and parents.
