The Admissions ProcessThank you for your interest in Politz Day School of Cherry Hill! Our goal is to ensure a good match between each applicant and the school’s ability to meet his or her academic, social, emotional, and physical needs. The first step in the admissions process is a visit our school. Politz campus tours include an introductory meeting with our administration, along with visits to the classrooms, and are available by appointment throughout the year. Because we pride ourselves on a low student-teacher ratio, there is limited space available in each grade level.The priority application deadline for the 2019-20 school year is March 15, 2019.APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
