Grades 1–4

Rolling Admissions Process

Avenues New York is pleased to offer rolling admissions to candidates applying for Grades 1 through 4. Rolling admissions invites families to apply at any time during the year and receive a decision from the admissions committee once all parts of the application process are completed. 

Once offered admission, the non-refundable enrollment deposit is required two weeks after the acceptance date, followed by full tuition paid in the spring, in two installments.

Please note: Prospective students applying to grades two through four must already have attained proficiency in either Chinese or Spanish. Children will be assessed one-on-one in English and in either Spanish or Chinese.

If you have already submitted an application, please click here to request the required documents.
