Event description


Only reserve a ticket for one open house. Admission is limited to one open house session.

Doors open 15 minutes prior to event start time and open house starts promptly at scheduled time. This is an informational session only. Families will not be given a tour of the school.

This is an open house for parents/guardians with a current 5th grade child. Due to demand, we ask that only one adult accompanies your child (no siblings please). Children do not have to attend, and attendance at an open house is not a requirement for admission. A visit does not give you any advantage in the admissions process.

This is an opportunity to attend an open house with your 5th grader. We are a 6-12 school, with 6th through 12th graders at Clinton.

Our academic program is built around the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, for which we became accredited in December 2017. Students complete the Regents required for their NYS high school diploma in 9th and 10th grades. This allows students to participate in the IB Diploma Programme in 11th and 12th grades. The IB Diploma Programme is an academically and developmentally challenging curriculum, and it is used around the world. For more information, see

We may be a good fit for your child if you are looking for:

  • A 6-12 school that supports a liberal arts education that supports students who are interested in pursuing university programs in the arts, humanities, sciences, and math
  • A comprehensive free afterschool program (3:00pm-5:45pm) everyday
  • A newly constructed building in an easily accessible location.

We may not be a good fit for your child if you are looking for:

  • The flexibility and choices that a large school offers.
  • Advanced Placement (AP) courses or Advanced Regents Diplomas. We only offer the IB.

Admissions Process

We are a D2 Choice School, and follow the process as per the Office of Enrollment.

We will decide how to invite students based on the below percentages:

  • Attendance and Punctuality (28%)
  • 4th Grade Report Card (47%)
  • NYS Exam Scores (25%)

Once invited in, students will do an in-person math assessment, writing assessment and interview. Students' scores will be ADDED to the original total in the following percentages:

  • Writing (33%)
  • Math (33%)
  • Interview (33%)


You do not need to email anyone if you decide to cancel.

PLEASE NOTE: Students will meet with students, and parents will meet with parents. If you will need to leave by a certain time, please tell your child what time he/she needs to meet you in the lobby before the event.
