Thank you for expressing an interest in HudsonWay Immersion School (HWIS). We are happy to help those who are curious to learn about our one-of-a-kind immersion program & vibrant school community. HWIS' mission is to help develop students' cognitive skills, academic intelligence & emotional intelligence, fostering a sense of global citizenship.

Those interested in applying for our day school are encouraged to visit our campus in Stirling, NJ for an information session, where they can meet and engage in an intimate conversation with HWIS education administration, teachers, and current parents about the program, and the benefits of immersion, and see students and teachers at work on a tour of our classrooms and facilities.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our programs or the admissions process!




The Admissions Process

Step 1: Attend an Informational Session or Private Tour

Sign up to attend one of our Information Sessions. If you're unable to attend any of the dates listed, you can schedule a private tour.

Step 2: Apply to HudsonWay Immersion School

You can complete the application online. Families who would like to inquire about financial aid are encouraged to visit our Financial Aid page.

Step 3: Release Records

We require a Teacher Recommendation and Transcript Request Form from your child’s current preschool or elementary school. This form must be submitted before an admissions decision can be made. *Exceptions may be made for preschool applicants.

Step 4: Schedule a Student Visit and Family Meeting

Upon receiving your completed application we invite all applicants to come in for a half-day class visit. We also ask that both parents schedule time for a parent meeting through our online admissions & enrollment system, SchoolAdmin. This streamlines, for both parents and staff, the admissions, enrollment and re-registration processes. Additionally, a cognitive assessment will take place for students applying to our elementary program.

Step 5: Admissions Decision

The admissions committee carefully reviews each candidate before a decision is made, and each applicant will be notified of the outcome of this process via email or phone call. *For financial aid applicants: financial aid applications will be reviewed and awarded upon acceptance.

If you have any questions about applying to HudsonWay Immersion School, or would like help during the admissions process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
