Primary School Admissions

Thank you for your interest in The Cushman Primary School!


Listed below are the steps necessary for your child’s application process to our Primary School (Nursery – Kindergarten). 

  1. Click on and complete the Request Information Form to have an informational application packet sent to your home.
  2. After receiving the application informational packet, contact Sheri Rentzepis, Director of Admissions, at 305-835-1928 or srentzepis@cushmanschool.org to schedule an individual or small group tour of our campus to learn about The Cushman School journey, which takes place from nursery through eighth grade. If you are interested in enrollment to the Laura Cushman Academy, please contact Dr. Della Nelson at 305-835-1967 or dnelson@cushmanschool.org and visit the Laura Cushman Academy page.  
  3. Return your child’s application, $150 application fee, and a copy of the applicant's birth certificate to The Cushman School’s Main Office. We accept applications year round and have a rolling admissions policy. We offer re-enrollment to our current families at the end of January for the upcoming school year. We are able to offer new enrollment to applicants mid-February, space willing. It is never too early to turn in an application.
  4. *Primary School applicants and their families will be invited to join us for a "Meet and Greet" day, which will take place at the end of January. At the "Meet and Greet," applicants and their families will have a chance to get to know our Cushman School teachers and administrators.
