Apply to Bayside



Application & Enrollment Process

Bayside Academy accepts students in grades PK-12. Students are evaluated on an individual basis. PK students must demonstrate the ability to receive instruction. PK and Kindergarten students are evaluated in a half-day classroom setting on Bayside’s campus. Grades 1-6 are reviewed for admission based on entrance tests, prior school records, standardized tests and recommendations. Students in grades 7-12 are admitted on the same criteria, in addition to extracurricular interest, talents, character and integrity.

The Admissions Committee considers a wide range of characteristics with each application, including, but not limited to the following: scholastic aptitude, academic motivation and performance, extracurricular activities, character and integrity. Bayside admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid or other school-administered programs.

Family commitment to an independent school education is also a priority.  Are the parents Bayside or independent school alumni?  Are siblings current Bayside students?  Is the family as a whole committed to Bayside Academy?  Bayside carefully weighs all of these factors in making admissions decisions.  

ADMISSIONS PROCESS:
  • RSVP online for a Future Admirals preview event or complete an ONLINE INQUIRY.
  • Please contact the Admissions Office to arrange a visit to Bayside Academy and tour the school.
  • Fill out and submit the BAYSIDE ACADEMY ONLINE APPLICATION. There is a nonrefundable application fee of $125 for each applicant.
  • Arrange a shadow day for grades 1-12, which will include an assessment period and personal interview. The shadow day is an integral part of the application process during the school year.  During the summer, students will meet with a division head.
  • Complete the application file with supplemental items, including recommendation forms, student questionnaires and school records. Completed applications and financial aid materials that are not submitted by the priority admissions deadline of January 12, 2018, (December 1, 2017) will be considered during the rolling admissions process on a space-available basis.
  • Admissions decisions and financial aid notifications will be conveyed via phone, email or direct mail.
  • Contracts will be offered to accepted students.
  • Once the contract has been signed and the nonrefundable enrollment fee of $500 has been paid (and, if applicable, the one-time, nonrefundable new family fee of $250 has been paid), the business office will establish the account and officially enroll the student.
