How to Apply

Our admission process is designed to get to know our applicants as well as possible, and provides a uniform framework that meets our ISAS accreditation requirements. Navigating the admission process for any school can seem overwhelming at first, but please be assured that we are here to help you every step of the way.

Let's get started!

Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are the two main entry points at Manzano Day School. Space in first through fifth grade is very limited and varies each year. The Admission Office staff is happy to speak with parents about when to apply.

Manzano Day School follows the September 1 age cut-off for pre-k and kindergarten applicants. Applicants for pre-k must be four years old and potty-trained by September 1 of the year they begin pre-k. Applicants for kindergarten must be five years old and potty-trained by September 1 of the year they begin kindergarten.


Manzano Day School welcomes students without regard to religion, race, age, color, creed, national origin, ancestry, gender, disability, sexual orientation or gender identification.
