Hancock Day School seeks to enroll students entering prekindergarten through eighth grade. Our students are inquisitive, strongly motivated, and highly committed to working through challenges and opportunities. Testing and assessment involves a team of teachers and administrators to ensure that the best decisions are made for each candidate and his/her family.
The admissions process begins with a tour of the school. Testing and evaluation sessions are scheduled during January and February. Two Saturday mornings are set for this purpose. Preschool and kindergarten candidates are assessed on basic readiness skills. Elementary students are administered reading and math tests and are required to produce a simple writing sample. Test results are reviewed by the Admissions Committee to determine admission.
- Prekindergarten students must turn four years old on or before September 1st.
- Kindergarten students must turn five years old on or before September 1st.
Dates for our Open House and Admissions Preview Sessions can be found on our school calendar.
