Application Requirements and Timeline


At King, we view the application process as building a portfolio for each student. Every element, from the interview to the teacher recommendations to the report cards, is woven together to help the admission committee understand how our applicants may best enrich our community.

Please read the important information for all applicants as well as the grade-specific requirements before beginning the application.

We are still accepting admission applications for the 2023-24 school year on a rolling basis for certain grades. Please contact our office at or (203) 322-3496 ext. 4350 to inquire about space in your grade of interest. 

At this time, our Financial Access application has been closed as we have allocated all funds for the 2023-24 school year. If you are interested in applying for the 2024-25 school year, the admission and financial access applications will open in the fall. Please sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on events and application deadlines.

As always, contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
