Exmissions

Almost five decades of exmissions excellence brought to bear for each individual child.

The Exmissions Process

Exmissions is more than a list of schools. It’s a collaborative process that
begins the moment your child is accepted, and ends with the perfect fit.

Step 1

The lay of the land

To navigate the kindergarten application process, parents must first understand it. We begin our exmissions process with a comprehensive seminar that covers application requirements, deadlines, and every option parents will want to consider. Fueled by almost five decades of exmissions experience, this seminar provides a thorough overview of navigating the complexities of New York City’s vast school system.

Step 2

Creating a plan

In preparation for application season, we hold 1:1 meetings with parents to identify an optimal list of schools for their child. We account for religious and geographic restrictions, leveraging our understanding of each child’s unique strengths and interests to give each family a strategically-sound playbook for success.

Step 3

Submitting applications

From touring and interviewing to recommendation letters and the applications themselves, we guide each family through their own unique application process. We not only help you stay on top of deadlines and technicalities — we’re there to provide feedback and help make strategic adjustments at every step.

Step 4

The strategy session

Once all applications have been submitted, our exmissions team will regroup with each family to reassess their exmissions strategy. We may add or remove target schools based on feedback from parents and admissions directors.

Step 5

The ISAAGNY School Report

For children applying to ISAAGNY schools, we develop a comprehensive 20-page confidential report. With inputs from teachers, administrators and our Director of Exmissions, we produce painstakingly detailed written evaluations to make sure your child is understood.

Step 6

School correspondences

Choosing where to send the first choice letter is just one of the strategically critical correspondances parents will need to navigate. We assist parents in gathering professional references, writing parent statements, and ensuring you’re communicating with the right people at the right schools.

Step 7

The final choice

Once schools have mailed out decisions, we help families make their final choice. If additional considerations (i.e. waitlists) come into play, we work behind the scenes to expedite the process and secure the best outcome for your child.
