- Release of Records form (download and give to your child's school -- please submit promptly)
- Caregiver/Teacher Evaluation form: Email your child's teacher/caregiver a link to complete it online (preferred) - or - download a .pdf for the teacher/caregiver to complete and mail to the Office of Admission
- An optional Letter of Recommendation can be submitted by a former teacher, coach, or an adult close to the applicant and submitted to Hathaway Brown’s Office of Admission.
Student visit & screening
We encourage your family to attend one of our Early Childhood Visitation Days. This will give your child a chance to play and explore one of our Early Childhood classrooms with you or a guardian, interact with our Early Childhood teachers and learn more about how we approach early childhood education. These visits are also a great way to get comfortable with our school before screenings. Our Visits Days are held on Fridays from 9:30-10:30 am on November 17, January 12 and February 2. Additional spring dates may be added. Space is limited so families must RSVP by calling 216.320.8767 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our scheduled EC Screening morning is Saturday, February 3. The Admission Office will contact those prospective parents that have submitted an Early Childhood application to schedule your February screening time. After the February decision round, please contact our Admission Office to schedule an individual screening. Admission screenings cannot be scheduled until your Application for Admission has been submitted.
