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. 

Grade 2-4 candidates combine their class visits and reading assessment during a campus visit from 8:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Candidates visit in classrooms at the same grade level that they are currently in so that they are with their peers.

Candidates will complete the remainder of their assessment on Saturday, January 27 between 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. During this time, they will complete a spelling, math, and writing assessment. 

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.
