A Coeducational School | Pre-Kindergarten to Third Grade

Welcome from Admissions

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for your interest in Beauvoir, a school that provides an extraordinary learning environment solely dedicated to educating the young child. Our faculty members are experts in early childhood education and are committed to providing meaningful learning experiences that give children ample opportunities to soar. During their years at Beauvoir, children discover that they are mathematicians, authors, scientists, artists, linguists, problem solvers, innovators, athletes and humanitarians. Here, a love of learning is instilled in children, as well as an appreciation, respect and knowledge of the world around them.
Beauvoir accepts applications for children entering pre-kindergarten through third grade and I encourage you to explore this site to learn more about the School and the application process. 
The best way to get to know Beauvoir is to see it for yourself! We offer Parent Tours and Open Houses, as well as Parent Meetings, which provide an opportunity for you to meet individually with a member of the Admissions Team to talk more about your child. 

I invite you to explore Beauvoir's blog, our website, and social media to discover what makes Beauvoir unique. We look forward to welcoming you to Beauvoir and to assisting you with the application process. If you have any questions, we would be delighted to answer them. 


Margaret Hartigan
Director of Admissions and Financial Aid
