How to Apply
Park Century admissions have gone virtual! We are currently accepting all applications for the 2020-2021 school year.
Park Century has a selective admissions process whose goal is to determine the best fit for your child. Neuro-psych testing is probably the single most important step you will take in the journey of finalizing your child's educational placement.
Park Century School has a rolling admissions policy with no application deadline. Placements are made based on available space once the applicant is determined to be a match for PCS' expertise and curriculum. Park Century School does not discriminate in its admissions policies on the basis of race, sex, color, creed or national origin.
Step 1: Virtual Parent Tour & Online Inquiry
Step 2: Application Submission
The next step is the submission of an application along with the following materials:
Complete psychoeducational or neuropsychological reports and test results, including a Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC V) administered within the past 12 months.
Relevant medical information.
Educational records and reports.
Other pertinent information such as school district IEPs (if applicable), speech and language evaluations, tutoring reports, and optometric reports.

Step 3: Initial Parent Admission Meeting
The Admissions Team reviews these materials and, depending upon the decision of that review, the Admissions Coordinator arranges an initial virtual meeting for the parents with the Head of School and Admissions Director. Prior to this meeting, it is requested that parents submit Application Part II, which is a developmental history of the child.
Step 4: Student Candidate Zoom Visit
At the conclusion of the Virtual Admission Meeting, a time is scheduled for the student candidate to virtually meet the Admissions Team and complete a possible assessment with a reading specialist.
When we return to in-person learning, students will visit the classroom on campus and be paired with a student "Buddy". Special care is taken during these meetings to reduce anxiety and create a welcoming atmosphere for the visiting student.
Step 5: Final Parent Admission Meeting
Finally, a virtual meeting is scheduled between the parents, Head of School, and Director of Admissions to discuss an appropriate program plan to fit the student's needs. A decision is then made whether to enroll the student at Park Century School.
