Early Notification Program

Stevens is pleased to offer an Early Notification Program to interested families who qualify. In order to qualify for our "Early Notification Program for Stevens Families," your child must be a sibling of a Stevens student, or child of an alumnus/a or current Stevens full-time faculty or staff member. We also offer Early Notification to families interested in applying for our 2-year-old through Kindergarten programs. For more information and application deadlines, please see below.

Current Families, Faculty/Staff and Legacy Families

Stevens Cooperative School is committed to a policy of affording siblings of currently enrolled students, children of graduates, and children of full-time faculty at Stevens a preference in the Stevens admission process. In accordance with this policy, Stevens offers an optional Early Notification Program for these applicants. The plan is intended to expedite the admissions process for those who are already part of our school community. Early Notification also benefits the school by clarifying the number of places available for the general applicant pool.

  • Applicants for the two-year-old program must turn two by June 1st for the coming academic year.
  • Applicants for the three-year-old program must turn three by September 1 of that academic year.
  • Applicants for PreK must turn four by September 1 of that academic year.
  • Applicants for Kindergarten must turn five by September 1 of that academic year.

Stevens is a diverse community in many ways, but also a school that carefully considers the best placement for each child. We recognize the fact that we may not be the best fit for every child in a family. For this reason, we strongly encourage all families to consider applying to several schools to ensure that their child will have other choices should Stevens not be an optimal fit. Preference is not a guarantee of admission nor of a space in a particular campus/class. If the applicant is qualified, acceptance and class assignment is offered at the school’s discretion.

Should you choose to participate in the Early Notification Program, please check the appropriate box on your child’s application. Early Notification participants are required to submit their application by December 1. Due to the limited number of interview spaces, we encourage interested families to submit their applications as early as possible. Admissions decisions will be sent via email on February 1.

Families who choose not to participate in the Early Notification Program are welcome to follow the traditional admissions cycle, and submit a regular application by January 1. Decisions for regular admissions will be sent via email on March 1.
