Frequently Asked Questions

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: Is Financial Aid available?

    Yes. Please review the process for financial aid.
  • Q: What happens during the Student Visit Day in February?

    We enjoy spending time with our Elementary applicants and finding out about their interests and developing math, language, and social skills. First Grade applicants visit for an hour at Exeter. Second through Sixth Grade applicants visit for half a day at Exeter, including lunch.
  • Q: How should I prepare my child for his or her visit?

    Children of this age are often aware that they may be changing schools and benefit from your support and encouragement when preparing to visit. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a typical morning at Kingsley as they feel comfortable and able. Applicants are hosted by a Kingsley student while in the classroom when they will meet new friends and spend time with teachers.
After we receive your application, we will set up your Parent Visit which includes a tour, half hour classroom observation, and a conversation afterward.

Child Visit - see details in Elementary FAQ.

Admission decision notification is emailed to families on March 10. Families have until April 10 to enroll.
