To be considered for Kindergarten admission, a child must be five years old before October 1 of the year of entry. The following are the basic steps involved in the admissions process:
Schedule a Tour
Beginning in October and running through mid-December, tours are conducted every Wednesday and Friday at 10am, and last approximately 90 minutes; reservations are required. Because it is one of the best ways to experience the school, we strongly recommend that you participate in a tour before completing your application.
Attend an Open House
We also ask interested applicants to attend an Open House on November 5th (at 6pm) or December 10th (at 6pm) and an all-school Assembly on Friday morning (reservations required for both).
Applications are available online in October prior to the admissions year, and must be submitted by January 11 at 5pm.
Consider Applying for Financial Aid
Financial aid applications are due in February. Please visit our Financial Aid section on the web for more information.
Each prospective student will be visited by a member(s) of our Admissions Committee at their current preschool. Visits such as these allow the Committee to observe your child in a familiar and low-stress environment.
In accordance with the Los Angeles Area Independent School Guidelines, parents will be mailed notification letters on March 15, 2013.
To make reservations for a tour, Open House, or assembly, please contact Natalie at Admissions@OaksSchool.org or (323) 850-3755. We look forward to seeing you!
