Steps to Follow

We are delighted you are exploring Pinewood and look forward to working with your family.  

Below you will find helpful information to guide you through the admission process.

  • Tour - Arrange for a personalized tour of campus and discuss our programs and curriculum in depth.
  • Complete the online application - CLICK HERE
  • Schedule a Shadow Day - The Shadow Day is where a prospective student visits Pinewood in their current grade and “shadows” the class schedule and activities. He/she is paired with a student mentor to help them throughout the day.
  • Request Unofficial Transcripts and Test Scores - The complete prior year's records and current year-to-date records are necessary. The admission staff may conduct additional testing if the records do not provide sufficient information, or if we need to re-assess a prospective student’s readiness.
  • Preschool and kindergarten eligibility is based on skill assessment that the admission staff conducts; or by the teacher during his/her Shadow Day.
  • Admission Review - Admission to Pinewood is selective and is based on personal motivation and behavior, testing results, prior school records, recommendations, and available openings. This process does take time and an admissions decision cannot be made until all the steps have been completed.

Once your child is admitted, to secure your spot, you must return the required Enrollment Contract and the $675 New Student Fee ($150 for PK3).

Pinewood does have need-based financial aid for families that qualify. CLICK HERE to get more information. The admissions process is separate from financial aid.
