Who does the Ancona School enroll?
How do I apply?
Will my child be interviewed?
No, student interviews are not part of our admissions process. Rather, student visits are scheduled for all applicants. In addition, we invite parents for an interview with a member of the Admissions team concurrent to the student visit. Student visits, just like our teaching approach, go beyond the norm; we look at the whole child.
Parent interviews are from 30 to 45 minutes. Student visits vary in length depending on the age of the child:
Applicants to Preschool (P3 and P4) and Kindergarten: 30 minutes
Applicants to 1st Grade: A school afternoon, from 12:30 p.m. – 3:05 p.m.
Applicants to 2nd – 8th Grades: An entire school day, from 8:05 a.m. – 3:15 p.m

Ancona is the greatest place. I’m so grateful every day that we made the decision to send our two children here.
