We are honored that you have chosen to grant us the privilege of partnering with you in educating your precious child, a trust that we take with the utmost humility and seriousness of purpose. These are the steps in the Yeshiva of Elizabeth’s admissions process:
2) Please complete the application by clicking on the link on the front page of the website. When applicable, please fill out the early childhood questionnaire in the Forms and Downloads. There is an Application fee of $125.
For transfer students, please also send us the two most recent years of report cards and standardized testing records, along with any other Individual Service Plans (ISP) or classification documents that may be relevant.
4)For transfer students entering Grades 1-6, the intake will be with Rabbi Beer, Dr. Goldie Grossman, Assistant Principal, and Mrs. Sora Leah Mirsky, Director of Student Services. Your child will have an informal personal interview with us, and then will take brief standardized assessments in Hebrew reading (keriyah), Chumash with Rashi (when grade-appropriate), reading, and mathematics. The process generally lasts 45-60 minutes in total.
5)At the time of your child’s interview, you will have the opportunity to speak to our Business Office to discuss any financial queries you may have.
6)After the personal interview, an admissions decision is usually forthcoming within a day or two (sometimes a bit longer for transfer students). You will be informed by mail of our decision. If your child is accepted, a registration card will accompany his or her acceptance letter, to be returned to school along with a non-refundable deposit check made out to the JEC.
Please note the following admissions cut-off dates for the 5775 (2016-17) school year:
