How to Apply

We look forward to learning more about your family. Our admissions process has been thoughtfully developed so that we can best understand your child’s learning style and determine if Stephen Gaynor School’s philosophy is appropriate for your child and family.

Stephen Gaynor School serves bright children with language-based learning differences, providing them with the tools they need to be successful.

We operate on a rolling admissions basis. We accept applications from September through June for enrollment the following academic year.
