The Pasadena Area Independent Schools consortium will host their annual Kindergarten/Elementary Options Night on Thursday, October 16 at 6:00 -7:30 p.m. at Chandler School (1005 Armada Dr, Pasadena). The Options night offers Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley residents the opportunity to learn about area schools all in one place.
The consortium of Pasadena Area Independent Schools includes; Barnhart, Chandler, Clairbourn, Crestview, Foothill Country Day, Gooden, Mayfield Junior School, New Horizon, Polytechnic, St. Mark’s, Sequoyah, Walden, Waverly, and Westridge. Parents will also be able to visit with other area private and public schools. Over 30 area schools will be participating.
The PAIS consortium was created to make the application process easier for parents. While each school is an Independent school with it’s own mission and school leadership, the schools work in concert to provide common forms, screenings and decision dates. The intent is to make the process easier for parents applying their children to area private schools.
At the Kindergarten/Elementary Options night you’ll have the opportunity to talk directly with admissions directors and representatives from the PAIS schools and other area schools. The consortium puts together a Kindergarten Application Matrix that is available at the options night. The Matrix incorporates the participating schools profile and important dates.
The public is welcome. No reservations are needed. Please note this event is for Adults Only. For questions, please contact any of the above schools and ask for the Admissions Office.
