The Admissions ProcessThank you for your interest in Politz Day School of Cherry Hill. The first step in the admissions process is to 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. The goal of the admissions process 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. Because we pride ourselves on a low student-teacher ratio, there is limited space available in each grade level.In order for your child's application to be considered, please complete all of the following steps:
