Assessment & Readiness

Stratford School welcomes students throughout the school year, provided there is space available in the desired program, and the child is grade level ready. All students in kindergarten and above will be interviewed and assessed by a grade level teacher to confirm readiness.

In addition, we utilize the following age cutoffs:

  • Preschool: Students must be at least two and a half years old and toilet trained at time of enrollment.
  • Pre-K & Above: December 2 is the cutoff date for all students in Pre-K and above. For example, if entering kindergarten, students must turn five years on or before December 2 of the school year in which they enroll.

Enroll

Upon successful completion of the assessment, students will be offered admission as program availability allows. If there is no availability in the desired program, the student will be added to a wait list by application date.

We are excited that you are considering Stratford School for your child’s education. If you have questions at any time during the admissions process, please call the Admissions Services team at 408-973-7321.
