Events: We do not have any events or open houses for families applying to Grades 1-4. If we are able to process your child’s application, we will then schedule visits to the school. In the meantime we encourage you to peruse our website to learn more about our community and curriculum.
Interview and Tours: Most new students enter Trinity in Kindergarten and spaces for grades 1-4 are available only through attrition. Still, we would be pleased to consider your child’s application for any openings that may occur and encourage you to begin the process by following the instructions below. If space becomes available we will call you to arrange school visits (we typically meet families in January or February). We will not interview a child until we learn about a space, nor can we guarantee visits to all that apply.
If a visit is possible, your family will come for a school tour. After the tour, parents will meet with an Admissions Officer and at the same time, your child will work with another member of the Admissions team. For 3rd and 4th grade applicants, a half day on-campus visit might also be required. This is determined on a case by case basis.
Teacher Recommendation, Grades 2-4:
For grades two and three, ask a current teacher of the applicant to fill out our Teacher Recommendation form. For grade four, ask two teachers
of the applicant to fill out our Teacher Recommendation form
. These should come directly from the school or teacher. Our mailing address is Trinity School, Lower School Admissions Office, Trinity School, 139 West 91st Street, New York, NY, 10024. The form can also be scanned and emailed to Kathleen.Crowley@trinityschoolnyc.org
, or faxed to 212-501-0207.
Writing Sample, Grades 3-4: A writing sample is required from Third and Fourth grade applicants. Ideally we would like a copy of your child’s writing from school with teacher comments on it (i.e. an essay, book report, poem, etc.). This can be sent from the school or come directly from you.
