Welcome to The Academies at Gerrard Berman Day School and thank you for your interest.
How to Apply
Applying is easy using our Online Application. We encourage families to apply online as it simplifies submission, provides parents a tool for tracking online the status of their admission after their application has been submitted, and is the most cost-efficient way to apply. A non-refundable fee of $200 must be submitted with each application.
We accept children beginning at 19 months old in our Preschool. To be considered for admission in grades K – 8, children must reach the appropriate age for their grade by November 1 of the year they are to enter The Gerrard Berman Day School, five years old for kindergarten and six years old for first grade. The admission process for grades kindergarten and up consists of a review of the prior teacher referral, developmental history, psychologist testing, and school records. All prospective students spend a day or a portion thereof in a GBDS classroom.
Places are engaged for the entire school year. No reduction of the year’s fees will be made on account of absence, withdrawal or dismissal. The school reserves the right to suspend or to dismiss any students whose progress, conduct or attendance is not satisfactory.
Create an Online Application
To begin the Online Application process, Create an Account. Then log in to your account and Create A New Student Application for your child. You will then have the flexibility to log in and out of your account and access your open application.
After submitting the application, you will be able to track online your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account.
