Admissions Process

Mazel Day School makes admissions decisions in regard to a student’s appropriateness for the program based on a number of different criteria. Confidential teacher recommendations, grades, standardized test scores and the student’s visit/interview are all considered.

The first step in the admissions process begins with a submission of an application form, followed by a visit tour by prospective students and parents, as well as an interview and assessment of applying students by our Educational Director.  This will give you the opportunity to see what we can provide your child, as well as if your child is a good candidate for our program.   If your child is currently on a waiting list for any of our classes, the process of the admission schedule below still applies.

Tuition assistance is available to qualifying families of students applying to Kindergarten through Grade 8.  The amount of aid awarded each year is based on documented need (including tax returns). All information submitted is kept strictly confidential.  When completing the application for admission, check the appropriate box to indicate that you are requesting tuition assistance information. The School Office will forward all the necessary forms to you with detailed instructions and deadlines.


The following items should be submitted by January 31st (Preschool applicants) or February 15th (Grades K-8 applicants). Late applications will be considered on a space available basis.:

  • Completed Application Form

Following the receipt of all documentation, new student visits to the school will be scheduled.  Visits include an on-site tour with parents, a student interview and screening (informal or formal, depending on age of child).  The Director of Admissions will contact you to schedule an appointment for your tour.
