APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS 
In order to be considered for enrollment, the following requirements must be met:

SHADOW DAY
Students entering grades 2 - 8 are required to shadow in their prospective grade for a regular school day. Exceptions are made in the summer. Your child may wear casual clothes or their current uniform. This is a great opportunity for your child to meet future classmates and teachers!  
On the shadow date, the following must be provided: 
  1. Copies of last three report cards, if applicable
  2. Results of the most recent standardized tests, if applicable
  3. Letter of recommendation from a teacher from which the student is transferring (Gr. 2 - 8)

Your child will also be asked to take an evaluation on the shadow day. A fee of $25.00 must be paid to take the Readiness Evaluation for the grade to be entered. Parents should be at ease knowing that our faculty and students will warmly make your child feel "at home" at NAGS!

The Readiness Evaluation is a guide used by the Administration and Faculty for admission to Nazareth Academy Grades School.
