There are three steps involved in becoming part of the New Day community:
- Attend a Tour or Open House
- Submit Your Application
- Gain Acceptance and Enroll
1. Attend a Tour or Open House
The admission process is designed to help us get to know each family and vice versa through the tours or open house events. During a tour you will get an opportunity to visit New Day School’s expansive campus and learn about our philosophy, program, who we are and what we do. These tours are for adults only. An open house event is organized once a year and is open for adults and children. Please check our website for the date of open house (typically in January).
The regular tours are offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays at 11 a.m. To schedule a tour or get more information on enrollment process, please contact our Enrollment Coordinator Atandra Didi, firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 503-231-7425 between 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
2. Submit Your Application
New Day School is a year-round school. Applications are accepted throughout the year; however, the main enrollment takes place for summer and fall sessions. To be on our waitlist, please submit the application with an application fee of $25. You can drop the application in our office or mail it to New Day School, 1825 SE Clinton St., Portland OR 97202.
We are accepting applications for Fall 2018. We currently have one 2-day space available.
3. Gain Acceptance and Enroll
We offer admissions based on various factors like age, availability, gender ratio in classrooms, suitability of the family to the Neo-Humanistic approach and of course one’s number on wait-list. Once you are accepted, you will receive an offer letter with enrollment packet via email from our enrollment coordinator. In order to reserve your child’s space at NDS, the non-refundable registration, materials & sunscreen-fee, and 50% of 1st month’s tuition is due within one week of your acceptance date. An enrollment meeting will be scheduled to submit the paperwork and complete the enrollment procedure. Your child will be invited to visit the school for half an hour during outside play time to facilitate smoother transition when he or she starts the school.
