Enrollment Timeline
The ELC academic year begins in September and this is when new students enter our program. If a space becomes available mid-year, families in our applicant pool will be contacted. An enrollment timeline for our September start date is below. 

  • Families that have applied to the ELC will be invited to our Open House. The Open House will be held on Thursday, November 30 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM and it is for parents and guardians only.
  • The re-enrollment phase for current families takes place in early February.
  • The enrollment phase for current ELC and Fay School siblings, Fay School employees, and Fay School alumni takes place in late February.
  • The general enrollment phase begins in March for spaces that are still available. At this time, families will be invited to the ELC for tours (if they did not attend the November Open House) and for an interview.
