Process

Admissions for the 2018-19 academic year at Queens Paideia is still underway.

From September till early April, we schedule regular Saturday open houses and weekday morning information sessions. If you would like to add your name to our open house attendance or announcement list, please contact us.

Upcoming:  Private appointments only till next September

Following your visit, the next step is to complete and send in an application, which requests current contact data and includes a parent questionnaire so that we can learn more about your child and your interest in Queens Paideia. We also ask that you have one of your child’s current instructors complete and mail in our instructor evaluation form. The application and instructor evaluation form can be downloaded at the links below.

Upon receipt of these materials, we may ask for any of the following:

  • An official school transcript from your child’s current school, forwarded to us directly from the school.
  • Optional: works by your child that may be relevant–writings, drawings, math work, and so forth.

We will then be in touch to schedule a time for your child to visit. If you have any questions, please contact us.
