Sibling Applications

At The Berkeley School, we pride ourselves on being a school for the entire family. As such, we welcome applications from families who have children already enrolled at TBS.

Although we already know your family and our team may have even spent time with your child, we know that each of your children is unique in their learning, curiosity and disposition. That’s why we get to know siblings in their own right through individual screenings. With respect to enrollment, our early action timeline for siblings allows families to have an admission decision before the winter break so that they can have all their children enroll at the same time.

Families can choose the 10-month contract option which spans a typical school year from September through June. There is also access to the summer program if that is what your family needs by choosing the 12-month contract option which runs from June of 2021-June of 2022. 

*NOTE: Sibling applicants can apply anytime throughout the school year, however this timeline is meant to prioritize their applications and Individualized Family Tuition with their siblings for sametime notification.

Who Can Apply?

This application process is open to siblings of currently enrolled TBS students who will be 2.7-, 3-, 4-, or 5-year-old ‘s by their first day of school.
