Opening Grades

2016-2017 Academic Year

For the 2016-2017 academic year, we are accepting applications for the following grades:

  • Little Oaks Program (Kindergarten): for five year olds
  • 1st Grade: for six year olds.

Due to small class sizes, we will have a combined class of Little Oaks and 1st Grade (and will consider 2nd grade students as well).  We will have two regular teachers to allow for different grade levels to receive separate instruction for mathematics and language arts.

We generally follow New York State schools on age date cut-offs (must reach age by Dec. 31st of year), though we can discuss exceptions with parents.

We intend to re-instate our Acorns (preschool) program in the 2017-2018 school year.  We will consider opening additional grades if there is sufficient enrollment for grade 2 and above.  We plan to expand the school at the rate of at least one grade-level per year. At our fullest capacity, we will be serving grades Pre-Kindergarten to grade eight.

We recommend that parents looking for a classical education option for their children in high school consider The Montfort Academy in Mount Vernon, NY.
