The kids are settling in summer camp. Moms and Dads have a much needed respite from the demands of school schedules, play dates, practices, rehearsals and other extracurricular activities. But soon enough, it will be time to start the seemingly daunting tasks of the private school admissions season. It is important to realize that the private school application process has become increasingly competitive due to increased interest from international families, as well as domestic families looking for alternatives to public school and the even more heightened competition for day school admissions. It would be wise, therefore, to begin thinking of admissions strategies and to consider visiting these schools as well as other schools in your area to get an idea of which school would be best for your child.
