How to Apply

PASECC Admissions Information Session
Friday | May 19 | 9:30 am

During this information session we will discuss the changes to the application process that will affect students who are starting school in fall 2018. These changes include:

- Extending the age range of their student body to include younger children. Children born on or before June 30, 2016, will be eligible for PASECC in fall 2018.
- Changing the date the application process begins. Applications for PAS members will open on August 1, 2017, and for nonmembers on the day after Labor Day, September 5, 2017.

Come learn about the school, meet PASECC Director Pamela Schwartz, and hear from parents who have children in the ECC.


PASECC, like many other early childhood centers, is an ISAAGNY school and follows their admission guidelines and dates. This means that you will be notified in writing regarding your child’s admissions status on the agreed-upon ISAAGNY notification date.

Though we wish we could accept all of our PAS applicants, we receive such a large number of applications from Park Avenue Synagogue families (including siblings), that we are not able to accommodate everyone. Special consideration is given to involved, long-term PAS members, but this does not guarantee admission, as we balance classes based on age, gender, and other factors. Nonmembers are required to join Park Avenue Synagogue once their child is accepted into the school.

There is an application fee of $70 per child. The application process includes a visit and tour of the school by one or both parents and a separate visit with the child.

We look forward to hearing from your family. Thank you so much for your interest in our school.
