SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS

Parents of school-age applicants must sign the Transcript Release and present it to the guidance counselor or registrar at the applicant’s current school in order to authorize the release of a copy of the applicant’s academic records.

TEACHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Prospective parents must deliver the appropriate Teacher Recommendation Form to the applicant’s current teacher. The teacher should return their recommendation directly to University Liggett School.

CLASSROOM VISIT

Kindergarten applicants spend 1-1.5 hours in the PreK4 classroom

Grade 1-5 applicants visit their current grade classroom from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Your admissions associate will help prepare you and your child for the visit day.

PARENT CONFERENCE

An informal parent meeting is required for all students applying to University Liggett School. These meetings may take place at any point during the admissions process. Most parents choose to meet on student visit days, but can be scheduled by appointment.

GRADE SPECIFIC TESTING/ASSESSMENT

Kindergarten applicants are evaluated for school readiness as part of the student visit day.

Grades 1-5 applicants are assessed in reading and math as part of their visit day.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

The financial aid committee determines financial aid awards for admitted students based on a family’s demonstrated financial need for grades K – 12. Financial aid is not available for Prekindergarten programs.

For families seeking financial aid, the financial aid application must be completed on the SSS by NAIS website (www.solutionsbysss.com/parents). The deadline for the first round of financial aid for Lower School is February 20, 2020.

There is a separate SSS application fee.
