Once your Application is received, we will call to schedule a visit for your child. This visit allows your child and our teachers to interact in a warm and friendly classroom setting, and helps determine whether Inly seems to be the appropriate environment for your child.
See Key Dates for details about days and times of Student Visits. Activities vary, depending on the student's age:
Toddlers and their parents visit the Toddler classroom together for a 30-minute visit on a mutually agreeable day. Children explore the room and meet with the Toddler teachers, while parents have a chance to see the environment first-hand.
Children’s House (preschool) applicants visit with teachers in the classroom with current students present while parents speak with Inly faculty about their child and their educational goals. We schedule these visits on Tuesdays from 9:00-9:30 a.m. or Wednesdays from 8:30-9:00 am.
Children’s House Kindergarten applicants visit with teachers in a small group, while parents speak with Inly faculty about their child and their educational goals. We schedule these visits on Tuesdays from 8:45-9:45 a.m .
First grade applicants visit with peers in a Kindergarten class for an afternoon (12:30–2:30 p.m.). They work with Inly students, talk one-on-one with a Lower Elementary teacher, and do some brief testing so that we can determine the best placement for them at our school. (The parent interview typically takes place from 2:00-2:30 p.m. the same day.)
Older elementary candidates (those applying for grades 2–6) visit a classroom for a morning (9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.) with peers of their age:
2nd, 3rd and 4th grade applicants visit in a Lower Elementary classroom
5th and 6th grade applicants visit in an Upper Elementary classroom
Applicants work with students in the classroom, participate in recess and lunchtime, talk one-on-one with a teacher, and do some brief testing so that we can determine the best placement at our school. (Parent interviews are scheduled for 12:30-1:00 p.m. that same day.)
Middle School candidates (those applying for 7th grade) visit our school for a full day (8:30 a.m.– 2:30 p.m.). They work with our students, spend some one-on-one time with teachers, and do some brief testing so that we can determine the best placement for them at our school. Parent interviews are from 2:00-2:30 p.m. that same day.
