The Application Process for New York City’s Christ Church Day School

Our admissions and application process is easy, and we’re always available to help you through the journey. If you are interested in a private preschool on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, please consider us.

We are delighted that you are interested in applying to Christ Church Day School.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year. In addition to a $75 non-refundable application fee, which is payable by credit/debit card or electronic check, we also require a family photo and a video of you and your child doing a favorite activity. Please limit your video to 1-2 minutes due to file size limitations.

In addition to submitting an application, our admissions process includes a virtual family visit with you and your child and a separate virtual Open House to give you an opportunity to meet our faculty and view a tour of our school.

If you have any other questions, please contact us by phone (212.838.3039) or email
