Your Child's Visit to GHS:
Midyear applicants for JK will generally be invited to visit the school for a half or full day as appropriate. During your child's visit, we will assess their readiness to begin our JK program including following directions and ability to focus and complete short activities. You should arrive at 8:00 a.m. and your child will be ready to be picked up at 11:30 a.m. for half day and 3:00 p.m. for full day.
Half day students need only bring a snack to school. Students visiting for the whole day should bring two snacks, a packed lunch (please keep your lunch nutfree), a change of clothes, and a small blanket for comfort during the rest time.
Following year applicants to JK will be assessed during a short visit to the school on a day to be scheduled in the Spring.
KINDERGARTEN - 8th Grade
Midyear applicants will generally be invited to visit the school for a full day. During your child's visit, we will assess their readiness to begin our program. You should arrive at 8:00 a.m. and your child will be ready to be picked up around 3 p.m. and 3:10 p.m. for Middle School.
Students visiting should bring two snacks and a packed lunch (please keep your lunch nut free).
Following year applicants to grades K - 8 will be assessed during a day visit to the school on a day to be scheduled in the Spring.
After all application materials are received and the school visit and assessment have taken place, the Admissions Committee will meet to determine acceptance. In most cases for midyear applicants, parents can expect an admissions notification within 48 hours of their child's visit and file being completed. Notifications for following year applicants may take as long as two weeks to arrive.
Registration and Enrollment
Upon acceptance, parents will receive an Enrollment Contract. Parents generally have 1 to 2 weeks to review, initial, and sign the Enrollment Contract and to return it with the Enrollment Fee in order to complete the admissions process and to secure their child's enrollment at Golden Hills School.
We appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 916.933.0100.
