Families who have submitted an application are encouraged to register for a private tour with our admissions team for a firsthand look at our classrooms and community. Throughout the admissions season we also offer a selection of webinars that delve deeper into our curricular approach.
Corlears School admits students of any race, color, national or 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, or ethnic origin or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, or scholarships.
As a school that values equity and inclusion, we believe each child deserves to thrive in their learning environment. As a general education setting, our student success team is dedicated to ensuring students receive what they need to succeed; however, we do not have special education teachers in each classroom, nor integrated therapeutic services for students with high support needs who would benefit from a more specialized setting.

A family's determined tuition level is independent from decisions related to enrollment; this information is kept confidential and is not shared with the admissions committee. Additionally, receiving an indication of your TEAM tuition level does not signify enrollment or admission to Corlears School.
Corlears School is a proud member of the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). Founded in 1965, ISAAGNY aims to ensure orderly, professional, and equitable admissions processes at member schools: we do so by observing a shared admissions timeline, engaging in professional development to hone our collective craft, exchanging resources and best practices, and more.
