Committed to helping our children excel in academic studies and social skills.
Schedule a visit to BYDS to see our award-winning school campus.
After your campus visit, submit a completed Application for Admission along with the $75 non-refundable application fee and your child’s birth certificate. Supporting documents must be submitted with the application.
Once the application materials are received, the applicant will be scheduled for a classroom visitation day for Kindergarten – 5th Grade applicants. Your child will be screened to determine his/her grade readiness, and you will have an opportunity to speak with an administrator. Elementary school applicants should schedule their entrance testing through Education Specialists, LLC. 713-461-7996.
*Applicants for Infants, CDO, 2s, 3s, and Pre-K do not participate in a visitation day or evaluation but are invited to visit with their parents.
The admissions committee meets on a rolling basis and considers an application once the appropriate documentation, fees, and evaluation are received and assembled into a complete application file. Parents are notified as soon as possible of the final admissions decision, and the application process is considered complete when a school contract is signed.
If your child is accepted, you will receive an acceptance letter from the school.
Beth Yeshurun Day School admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. Beth Yeshurun Day School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic background in the matters of admission or employment.
A wait pool is a group of prospective students who would like to be considered for enrollment in a closed grade. A wait pool does not guarantee enrollment, as there needs to be enough students to consider adding additional students or opening an additional class. Students in the wait pool must meet all admission requirements.
The admissions committee may make offers of admission throughout May, especially if we will be opening a new section of a classroom. We are on rolling admissions throughout June, July and August and decisions will be relayed with enough time to be fully prepared for the first day of school.
The wait pool is not numbered nor ordered in any way. If the admissions committee elects to make offers from the wait pool, it does so in the same manner as it selects from the regular applicant pool.
If your second-choice school has a deposit deadline, we suggest you wait until close to the deadline to ensure BYDS is not planning to offer you a space before then. As the deadline approaches, please contact the admission office to check our wait pool status.
Please continue to send updated or new information: updated records, new or additional teacher recommendations, or a letter from you indicating your interest. Feel free to contact the admission office to check on the wait pool status. Should a space become available we will notify you.
