consider what the idealschool for your childwould be like. Is it smallor large? Competitive ormore nurturing? Arethere aptitudes or in-terests youd like to fos-ter in your child? Chal-lenges youd like to ad-dress?
Application deadlinescan vary from school toschool. Independentschools usually requiresome testing for admis-sions, transcripts fromthe childs last school andrecommendations fromcurrent teachers. In-terviews with studentsand their families takeplace in the fall and win-ter. For very young chil-dren, schools often con-duct group interviews orhave the child visit aclass to help gauge
whether the school is theright fit for the studentsneeds.
Its very important tocheck with the schoolabout its specific require-ments and deadlines,notes Bassett. The admis-sions office can also tellyou about various optionsfor paying for an inde-pendent school education.Most schools offer fi-
nancial aid for familiesthat qualify and someoffer tuition paymentplans, which spread feesout over multiple pay-ments. Bassett adds thatif youre concernedabout paying for a privateschool education, askingabout options makes goodsense.
