Application Process

Grades 2-4 Class Visiting & Assessment

Shore’s goal in screening applicants for any grade level is a happy and successful placement in our educational community. With this goal in mind, we administer testing to Grade 2 - 4 candidates that looks both at a child’s present level of achievement and at his or her aptitude for future learning. A class visit rounds out our personal understanding of each child. 

Candidates for Grades 2 - 4 combine their class visits and reading assessment during a campus visit from 8:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Candidates visit in classrooms of their current grade so that they are with their peers.

Candidates for Grades 2 - 4 will be invited to complete their testing on a Saturday in January or February 2019. Applicants to the relevant grades will receive an email as soon as registration is available.

Registering for Visiting & Assessment
An Admissions application must be submitted prior to registering for a visit day.  On the scheduled day, visitors should arrive at the Admissions Office to meet their Shore student host, who will be their ‘buddy’ for the day, and escort them to class. Please email Ali Jahn,, to arrange your class visit.

An assessment fee of $100 is due when registering for the assessment. Registration for the assessment will be released and posted in the fall, and all candidates to these grades will receive an email with registration information.
