Priority Applicants

NPS encourages applications from children of members of the National Presbyterian Church, NPS siblings, children of alumni, children of faculty and staff, and National Presbyterian Child Care Center (NPCCC) students. These priority applicants will be given special consideration in the process. Special consideration does not guarantee acceptance. If the Admissions Committee determines that NPS is not a good fit for a priority applicant, issues or concerns will be discussed with the parents clearly and in a timely manner.

We ask that Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten priority constituencies apply by the application deadline of November 19, 2018 and participate in the Nursery playdate or Pre-Kindergarten playdate in December. Recommendation forms are due by December 7, 2018.

Priority families applying to all other grades should follow the regular application schedule. Although the availability of space is not guaranteed in First Grade or above, the Admissions Office will certainly give the highest consideration to qualified priority applicants.
