Admissions Procedure

You may turn in a part one application at any time. Unless we call you with a potential opening sooner, we require that parents join us for a tour or an open house to learn more about our school. The touring season runs from October through mid-January. You may sign up for a tour or open house event in the fall of the year before your child is eligible to attend (registration for each tour and/or open house will be posted here on the Friday closest to September 15th each year). You will receive a part two application in person when you attend a tour or open house.

Thank you for your interest in One Fifty Parker Avenue School. The following is the procedure for applying:

1. Submit an application ("part 1") anytime

Download and mail in this application, along with a $75 non-refundable fee, to:

One Fifty Parker Avenue School
Attn: Admissions
150 Parker Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94118

Applications are accepted year round and may be submitted any time after the birth of your child. Submit the application and fee by February 1 to be considered for admission that fall. There is no preference for applications submitted before the February 1 deadline. All applications go into a waiting pool by date of birth. We give special consideration to siblings and children of Parker alumni. To see when your child will be eligible for enrollment, please refer to the chart below:

We strongly prefer that applications are mailed in rather than walked in. Our school is not easily accessed by the public as our teachers and small administrative staff are busy with the children daily. Once we process your application, we’ll be in touch to confirm receipt.

Families experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance. You may download a tuition assistance application here. Our application fee will be waived. Please contact the Director to discuss. Tuition Assistance applications are also due by February 1 to be considered for the following fall.

If you prefer to visit the school before submitting this application and paying the fee, you may do so by attending an Open House or Tour when your child is age eligible according to the chart above.

2. Attend a Tour or Open House [Fall/Winter only]

As part of the admission process, we require that you learn more about our school by joining us for a tour or an open house. Please refer to the chart above to determine tour eligibility. When you visit, you will receive the second (and final) part of the application.

3. Submit the part two application by February 1 prior to your eligible fall start date (according to chart above)

We will hand this second part of our application to you during your visit to the school. Please submit this by our admissions deadline on February 1 to be considered for that fall.

4. We’ll be in touch!

Thanks again for your interest in Parker School! After you submit both parts of the application and attend a tour or open house, look out for an admissions notification letter mailed at the end of the second week of March. Our school adheres to common admissions dates, as agreed annually by many of the SF and Marin County preschools.
