Applicants to Green Vale are admitted to all grades depending on their qualifications and the availability of openings. The school welcomes applications from children from all over the greater metropolitan area. The current student body represents 30 different school districts across Long Island.
As a first step, we encourage parents to arrange a visit with the Director of Admissions and to tour the school at that time. Please call the Admissions Office at 516-621-2420.
