The most important thing is that your child is in an environment where they thrive. Emerson provides a Y5-8 curriculum for gifted and academically talented students, and our admissions process helps us identify whether your child would do well here. Children have a wide range of abilities and gifts, and intelligence is just one factor in Emerson’s application process.

Send Your Child’s Academic Records
Request copies of grade reports and a current teacher evaluation, when applicable, and have them mailed or sent electronically to the Emerson Admissions Office. For young five and kindergarten applicants, please submit progress reports, if available. If you have complete copies of your child’s grade or progress reports at home, you are welcome to scan and send those instead of requesting them from the school.

Attend a Campus visit
Campus visits will be scheduled as allowed until the last school day in May for students interested in starting in the fall. An application, teacher referral form, grade reports from the current and last school year, and a virtual portfolio must be submitted prior to a campus visit day.
For Young Fives and Kindergarten
Applicants are invited to one of three applicant visit days, and can choose between Feb. 4th, March 4th or April 23rd
No IQ testing will be required for admissions decisions at this time, however, the school reserves the right to request testing be done in the future if it is needed to support a student’s learning needs.
Because of small class sizes, many grades reach capacity, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible to ensure your child is considered.
Emerson is a rolling enrollment school, so there is no cutoff date for applications. Applications can be submitted at any time and will be considered as long as space is available.
