Frequently Asked Questions
If you are interested in applying to Resurrection School, please call us at (914) 967-1218 or send an email inquiry to Mrs. Kelly Golden in our school office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Prospective parents and students are also encouraged to visit the campus to have a tour and interview with an administrator.
In order to apply to Resurrection School, a student and/or family must first submit an application form to our office. Applicants may also be requested to come in for a formal student interview at some point in the process. The interview can be scheduled at the same time as the parent visit and tour of campus. An application with additional required documentation must be completed and submitted for a student to be considered for admission. Please see the Admissions Process section under the Admissions tab of this website.
We do offer student shadow days. We also encourage students and their parents to arrange for a personal tour of the school. This is an optional part of the admission process, but many applicant families find a tour to be both informative and a way to experience the school’s learning environment. Visiting days begin in October and tour arrangements can be made by calling the school office at (914) 967-1218 or by emailing Mrs. Kelly Golden in our school office at email@example.com.
There are no testing requirements for admission.
There are approximately 400 students enrolled in Grades Pre- K through 8 at Resurrection School. Classes have an average class size of 18 students.
Resurrection students come from communities in Westchester, Fairfield, New York, and Bronx Counties.
Transportation is ultimately the parents’ responsibility. However, many towns and villages in New York State provide transportation through their school districts. Please contact your local school district to determine if your school district provides busing and if you are eligible. Many Resurrection families arrange carpools among themselves, especially for after school activities.
No. Although most students at Resurrection School are Roman Catholic, we welcome and encourage students of all faiths.
Do families who have an affiliation with Resurrection School have an advantage in the admissions process?
Resurrection School will give priority consideration to applications from families with siblings currently enrolled in the school and from families who are registered members of Resurrection Church parish or participate actively in another Catholic Church parish. However, all other considerations are equal and no admissions are ever guaranteed.
