Siblings and Legacies

Early Decision Notification Option

The admissions office at Saint David's School is committed to providing current and alumni families our highest level of attention.  However, we strongly encourage parents of sibling and legacy applicants to fully investigate a wide array of schools for their boys. 

Saint David's requires the School Readiness Task for Sibling and Legacy Kindergarten applicants. The SRT will be administered during the applicant's visit unless he has already participated in the activity at another school. Reflection Sciences will retain the results of the KRT and share them only with other participating ISAAGNY schools designated by the parents. As this is a pilot, results will not be shared with parents and Saint David's will not use the results as a determining factor in the admissions process.

Saint David's siblings and sons of alumni have the option of applying for Early Decision notification under the guidelines set forth by The Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York ( www.isaagny.org). Families applying for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, or Grade One who wish to participate will receive an admissions decision approximately one month in advance of the Regular Decision notification dates. The range of possible admissions decisions for Early Decision participants shall include acceptance, denial or deferral to the Regular Decision pool.  

In the event that an applicant is accepted through the Early Decision Notification process and would like to enroll their son at Saint David's School, they will be required to reply with a signed contract and deposit by the reply dates designated below. Concurrently, families who accept a placement offer at Saint David's through Early Decision Notification must withdraw applications from any other schools to which they have applied.

If you would like to participate in the Early Decision notification program, please notify the Office of Admissions by December 1, 2017. If eligible, families may opt for Early Decision notification at multiple schools.

Sibling and alumni parents seeking financial aid will be notified of their grant at the time of acceptance.
