Connect with a Parent

While we can answer most of your questions, there are certain insights that only a current parent can provide. We love our community and pride ourselves in the experiences that our current families have. We’d love for you to get a glimpse of that by connecting with one of our current families. Feel free to reach out to one of them using the chat bubble on this page.

We look forward to getting to know you and your family!

Is it possible to enter HPS mid-year?

Yes, we will take a student mid-year if he/she meets our requirements and space is available.

What testing is needed?

Students applying to grades 6-12 take the ISEE or the SSAT. Students applying to 4K - 5th grade come on campus for a skills based assessment.

Does Hyde Park have a wait list/wait pool?

When a grade is full, we utilize a wait pool.  Our wait pool is not a “list” with a position ranking (1,2,3, etc.,) but rather a “pool” of qualified applicants for whom there were no available spots.  Should an opening become available, the Admission Committee will convene, review all applicants and select the most appropriate candidate for the opening. If a space does not become available and you would like to roll your application to the next admissions cycle, we will do so at no additional cost, however, we will ask you to update the items in your portal checklist.
