La Scuola d’Italia maintains a policy of rolling admissions, in order to best serve our international student population. Knowledge of Italian is not a prerequisite for admission up to 6th grade. La Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi is open to all students who qualify for admission, without regard to race, religion, sex, or national origin.
The completed online application form must be accompanied by two letters of reference introducing the family to the school and $100 application fee (non refundable).

Though La Scuola d’Italia maintains a policy of rolling admissions, it is suggested to apply no later than Monday, January 9, 2017. La Scuola follows ISAAGNY guidelines for acceptance notification.
Family Interview and Student Classroom Visit
Upon receipt of an application, parents are contacted to schedule an interview. During this visit, the student will be invited to attend and work with a class of the same age group.
Preschool to 1st Grade Students: ISAAGNY Confidential School Report: Parents of 3 or 4 year olds, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade children who are currently attending a preschool program, are required to submit the Independent School Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY) confidential school report. This report must be completed by the student’s school and sent directly to La Scuola.
Applicants for all other grades: For students applying to grades 2-12, La Scuola must receive directly from the student’s current school copies of official report cards for the previous two years. Confidential recommendation forms or letters from English Language, Math, and Science teachers must also be submitted through the school. La Scuola d’Italia participates in the testing program administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB) for grades 3 through 8. Families must submit transcripts from their children’s current and past schools and ERB results when applicable.
Upon acceptance, parents are required to sign an enrollment contract for the academic year to which they are applying.
