Upon receipt of your application, our admissions team will begin a review process.  Within two weeks time, we will contact you and provide an update on the status of your application.  In some cases, we may invite you and your child to come in for an interview appointment.  We may also wish to contact your child’s teacher and visit their current classroom.

Following these initial steps, if we continue to believe that the Cooke Center School might be an appropriate setting for your child’s needs, we will invite your child to visit one of our classrooms and work amongst our staff and students.

In most cases, this represents the final step in our decision making process. For questions or concerns, please contact our Admissions Associate at 212-995-1987.
