Siblings & Legacies

CGPS is first and foremost a family school. We believe in keeping our loyal and supportive families and alumni in the CGPS community, provided that we can best serve the holistic needs of the applicant.

If your child is a sibling or legacy candidate, you may, in accordance with ISAAGNY policy, select “Early Notification” on their application. In all cases, we advise all sibling and legacy families to apply to a variety of schools. All CGPS applicants are evaluated according to the same grade-specific admission criteria to ensure appropriate fit with regard to learning style and the student’s unique contribution to our textured and dynamic class communities. 

If you select “Early Notification,” please schedule your interview and your child’s visit no later than Friday, November 15, 2019 and submit their current school report by Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

Please note the following important dates for sibling/legacy applicants:

To be considered for Early Notification, applications must be submitted by Tuesday, October 15, 2019. School reports must be received by Monday, December 2, 2019. Parents who wish to elect Early Notification should notify Janet Barrett at 212.749.6200 x278 in the Admission Office no later than Monday, December 2, 2019.

Please note that schools cannot require parents to opt for the Early Notification program before December 1.
