Grades 4-9 2017-2018
Open House- This is a chance for parents and students to visit the school and get a sense of our environment. Prospective students and their families will take the 7:00am ferry leaving New London, CT and depart on the 12:45pm ferry to arrive back to CT at 1:30pm. Parking for the ferry is located at a garage across from the New London Train Station. Students will attend classes with their respective grades while parents tour the school/island and will get a chance to ask questions and discuss a typical school day. The cost of the ferry is $8 for prospective students and $19 for their family members.
Phase I: Application Deadline- All applications are due on this date and can be found on the school’s website under the “admissions” tab in the “information” section.
Phase II: Notification and Visitation Day- Parents will be notified if their student is moving on to the second phase, which is a full day visit at the school. Prospective students will be asked to take the 7:00am ferry to Fishers Island and spend an entire day without their parents present. The school day will end at 4:45pm when students depart on the ferry to arrive back in CT at 5:30pm. This process allows students to get a sense of what their day would be like if they chose to attend Fishers Island School and allows our school personnel the opportunity to see the student perform in our academic/social setting. Students should plan to pack a lunch for this day and any other items they need to participate in classroom activities, including any musical instrument the he or she may play.
