The Application Process
Prospective parent/guardian calls The Center School Director of Admissions for introductory conversation.
Director of Admissions
413-773-1700 ext 2
Parent/guardian visits school (Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday). Tour of the school, short classroom observation and discussion withEnrollment Director.
Parent/guardian fills out application and returns it with application fee. Gets teacher recommendation form started and submits records release form to current school.
When all the relevant material is in, the Admissions Office will contact parent/guardian to schedule a screening with a Center School teacher and applicant. Children are assessed for developmental placement, learning style and academic fit.
Once the teacher recommendation form is in, the school records are in hand and the screening has been written up, the Admissions Committee meets to make a decision.
The financial aid application, if applicable, should be submitted at the prospective parent’s earliest convenience. Please note that financial aid status is not part of the Admissions Committee’s decision-making.
