How to Apply

PASECC, like many other early childhood centers, is an ISAAGNY school and follows their admission guidelines and dates. This means that you will be notified in writing regarding your child’s admissions status on the agreed-upon ISAAGNY notification date.

Though we wish we could accept all of our PAS applicants, we receive such a large number of applications from Park Avenue Synagogue families (including siblings), that we are not able to accommodate everyone. Special consideration is given to involved, long-term PAS members, but this does not guarantee admission, as we balance classes based on age, gender, and other factors. Nonmembers are required to join Park Avenue Synagogue once their child is accepted into the school.

There have been some changes to the admission process. Starting with the school-year beginning in fall 2018, PASECC will be extending the age range of the student body and include younger children. The admission process is now open to children born on June 30, 2016 or before. Applications for PAS members will be open on August 1, 2017. Non-members may apply but, their applications will not be reviewed until September 5. All applications are due by Friday, October 20.

There is an application fee of $70 per child. The application process includes a visit and tour of the school by one or both parents and a separate visit with the child.

We look forward to hearing from your family. Thank you so much for your interest in our school.
