Visitors are welcome. We encourage interested families to visit the school. Please contact the office (937.767.7642 or email MJ) to schedule an appointment to tour the school or meet with a teacher.
Because The Antioch School is a small school, our group size and enrollment numbers are limited. We do accept applications at any time. When we receive your application, your child's name will be placed on our waiting list.
During Spring Parent-Teacher Conferences, decisions are made regarding our current students' placements for the upcoming year. If there are openings in any groups, admissions decisions for new students are made and parents are then notified (usually in April or May) that we will be able to welcome their child.
Financial Aid may be available. Contact the office to request an application or download it from the Financial Aid page.
The placement of children in groups is open for evaluation at anytime. If the parent, child, or faculty feel it is advisable to move a child from one group to another, a conference between parents and faculty will be held. The faculty has the final decision.
Early Admission Policy
Any child may apply for early admission. Readiness for early admission is determined by the teacher. The teacher will use any or all of the following methods to determine readiness for early admission:
a. Recommendation from Nursery or Kindergarten teacher
b. Observations of student while in Nursery or Kindergarten
c. Parent conferences
d. Readiness tests
The Antioch School admits children of any sex, race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin to all of the rights, privileges, and programs generally accorded or made available to children at the School.
