student visits

Your student will be invited to visit a classroom, either for the morning (for students entering grades PK, K and 1) or for the whole day (for students entering grades 2 and up). Your child can expect to participate in age-appropriate assessments during the visit. Appointments begin in October and continue through the winter.  After we receive your application, a member of the admission team will call you to set up your appointment, or you may call the admission office at 484-410-9664.

parent interview

A parent interview is also required in the admission process. When we arrange your child's visit, we will also plan a 30-40 minute parent interview.

Greene Street Friends School requires that all students be tested for admission. A member of the Admission staff as well as teachers will work with your child one-on-one in such areas as reading, writing, and math, as appropriate for their age and grade. This assessment will occur during your child’s visit.

teacher recommendation and release of information forms

Greene Street requires all students who attend school to submit a teacher recommendation. We also require student records for students applying to grades 1-8.

admission decision 

Families who have completed the application process will be notified of the admission decision by February 1.
