Welcome to Admissions
Welcome to Garden School. We are a unique educational institution in the heart of Queens where we have been central to the education of students from nursery through grade 12 for more than 90 years. Since 1923, the mission of our traditional, college preparatory school has been to admit families who want their children to grow, learn, and be the best they can be in a rigorous academic environment.
Get to Know Garden School
We welcome all prospective families to attend one of our scheduled Open House group tours any Wednesday morning at 9am that school is in session. If this time is not convenient, you may call us and schedule a private tour. During your tour, you will see the facilities, have a chance to meet the teachers, students and administration that make up the Garden community, see the classes in action, and get a chance to answer any questions.

The Admissions Process
Garden admissions currently operates a rolling admissions system. Generally, applications are processed on a first come, first served basis. This means that the sooner you feel comfortable applying, at any point in the process and for any particular year, the sooner you will hold your place in the admissions process for a particular grade in that particular year.
