Application Process

We are accepting applications for 2022-23!

New students may apply into any grade. Admission will be offered depending on student qualifications and grade capacity. We are proud to receive applications from families throughout Long Island. The current student body represents 42 school districts in Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens counties.

Applications are processed on a rolling basis, and decisions are communicated on the last Friday of every month. However due to high applicant interest in certain grades, we recommend submitting your application prior to January 15.

We look forward to getting to know your family!

1. Submit an Inquiry Form 
Families interested in learning more about Green Vale are encouraged to submit an inquiry form. From here you may elect to attend an event, schedule a call, a tour or a meeting, or simply request more information.

2. Visit Campus
Let us show you all that Green Vale has to offer. Private tours are offered daily and on select Saturdays and holidays. We also welcome you to attend one of our upcoming events.

3. Complete an Application
Families may submit an application at any time using Green Vale's secure online platform. Once an account has been created, an individualized checklist will outline next steps. Additional children may be added using the "Add a Student" button on the right side of the parent page. 
Non-refundable application fee: $75 per student

4. Submit Student Records
Once an application is received, a checklist in the Admission Portal will allow you to upload your child’s academic records, as well as submit a request for a teacher recommendation.
Please note that the requirements vary according to the age of the child.

5. Schedule Parent & Student Meetings
Taking time to get to know every family is a critical part of the admissions process. Parent meetings (currently conducted virtually) provide us with the opportunity to learn more about your child(ren) and answer your questions about Green Vale.

Student meetings/assessments are hosted either in person or virtually, and allow us to engage with each child and understand their academic and social emotional strengths.

6. Apply for Tuition Assistance (optional)
Applicants to Green Vale are accepted for admission on a need-blind basis. Our Financial Aid Committee begins reviewing applications for the upcoming school year each November.

To be considered, please complete an application through School & Student Services (SSS).

7. Decisions and Enrollment
Applications are accepted and processed on a rolling basis. The Admissions Committee meets at the end of each month to review applicant files received that month. Decisions are communicated by the director of admissions by email and postal mail.

Formal enrollment contracts are distributed at the end of January. Executed contracts along with deposit are expected within three weeks of receipt.  

Pending COVID restrictions, it is our hope to invite accepted students to campus for visit days in April.
