Application Requirements 

  • Personal tour and one-on-one conversation with the Director of Enrollment. We give private tours to parents/caregivers on Monday-Friday at 9:30am, 10:30am, and 1:30pm. Middle school applicants may join for the tour. Please register for a tour on Ravenna or contact the admissions office at admissions@hannahsenesh.org to schedule a tour. 
  • Complete application on Ravenna. To apply to Senesh, visit Ravenna where you can create a new account, or log in with your existing account. Search the School Directory for “Hannah Senesh Community Day School” and click the APPLY button. When you get to the Hannah Senesh page on Ravenna, make sure the year in the “Applying for the fall of” dropdown menu at the top of the page is the appropriate year. Through Ravenna you will be able to apply online, email Teacher Evaluation Forms to your child’s teachers, and check the status of your application. Applications are due Dec. 31st. We accept rolling admissions when space allows. 
  • School transcripts. Inform your child’s current school that you are applying to Senesh and have transcripts for the current year and the two years before (or as many as possible for those applying for kindergarten through 2nd grade) emailed to admissions@hannahsenesh.org.
  • Two teacher recommendations. Once in your Ravenna account, please delegate two teachers to fill out the Teacher Evaluation Form. We ask that current teachers start to work on the form in December, a few months into the school year and after your child’s teacher has had time to get to know your child. Teachers will be able to submit these forms directly through Ravenna.
  • Student visit/assessment with Senesh staff. Once an application is received and processed, a child visit/assessment will be scheduled. Kindergarten and first grade applicants will be invited to a group playdate. Second through eighth grade applicants will be invited for a school visit where they will meet with Senesh administrators, engage in educational activities, and have the opportunity to visit classes. These visits/assessments may be virtual or in-person. 

Please note, we follow the notification and reply dates determined by the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY).


Tuition, Financial Aid, and Grants

Senesh is an open and inclusive Jewish Day School committed to making our school accessible to all who seek a Jewish education. Please visit this page to learn about our tuition, financial aid, and grants. 

Lower School Grant for Jews of Color 
As we build the rich mosaic of Jewish life, we strive to increase the representation of Jews of Color who have been underrepresented in our community and who would find a warm and welcoming Jewish home at Senesh. With this in mind, a grant has been established to invest in resources to enable more Jews of Color to attend the lower school at Senesh. 

Please take some time to browse our website, learn about our vision, history, program and get an inside view of school life at Hannah Senesh.
