How To Apply

Thank you for your interest in the Meadowbrook School for your child.  The Admissions Team is always available to assist with any questions, so please do not hesitate to email us or call us at 215-884-3238 (extension 128).


Step 1:  Express Interest
If you are interested in learning more about the Meadowbrook School, please request an information packet here.


Step 2:  Come Visit Our School
The best way to experience The Meadowbrook School is for you to see our campus and see classes in action.  Our Admissions team will reach out to schedule a personal tour so we can learn more about you and your child.

The tour will allow you to visit classrooms, learn more about our unique approach to elementary education, and also include a conversation between you and our Head of School.


Step 3:  Complete Your Child’s Application
After visiting Meadowbrook’s campus, you should complete your child’s application and have your child's current teacher fill out a Recommendation Form and send it to The Meadowbrook School. 


The applications for admission are available here.

For entry into Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten use the PK-K-Teacher Recommendation Form

For entry into 1st through 6th grade use the  1st-6th Teacher Recommendation Form



Once completed, the application can be emailed to our Admissions team.

After submitting the application, we will assist in gathering the required additional components to complete the applicant’s file for review.  Report cards and other testing may be requested by the Admissions team.


Step 4:  Schedule a Visit for Your Child
After we receive your application, we invite your child to experience what a day is like at The Meadowbrook School.  

This visit gives your child an opportunity to participate fully in our classes and interact with their peer group.  An Admission staff member will contact you to set up a morning or day visit for your child with his or her current peer group. The length of the visit is determined by grade-level.

            a. Preschool: Your child comes to the current Preschool class with a parent and visits/observes for an hour during circle time and free play. For immediate placement in the class during the school year, your child may be asked to spend a morning with Preschool from 8:30am – 12:30pm.

            b. Pre-K – Kindergarten: Your child comes for a half-day visit from 8:30am – 12:30pm. They will be provided with a snack.

            c. 1st – 6th Grades: Your child comes for a one to two day visit from 8:30am – 3:00pm and will be provided with both a snack and lunch.

During visits for grades Pre-K through 6th grade, a brief academic assessment is performed.

 

Step 5:  Receive Admissions Decision and Enroll Your Child

After your child's school visit, families will be notified as soon as possible with an admission decision.  In addition to a phone call, a formal letter of acceptance will be sent. 

Enrollment agreements are included with the acceptance letter, and parents are asked to follow the directions and dates in order to complete the enrollment process.

Meadowbrook follows a Rolling Admissions process, so we continue to accept applications throughout the year, providing space is available.  If there is no space in the grade to which you are applying, you will be placed on a waiting list. 

The Admissions Team is always available to assist with any questions, so please do not hesitate to e-mail us or call us at 215-884-3238  (extension 128).

Thank you for your interest in Meadowbrook for your child!
