Lower School

    • Banner

Our Lower School serves children ages 2½–11 on a thirteen-acre wooded campus.

Lower School students in Stage II (kindergarten, grade 1), Stage III (grades 2, 3), and Stage IV (grades 4, 5) thrive with a rich curriculum of core courses and electives, including music, dance, art, world languages, science, and physical education taught by specialists in their fields. Before they head off to the Middle School, students have gained a strong sense of self and have developed skills to work independently and think critically.

Lower School Admissions Checklist

List of 7 items.

  • Step 1: Contact Us

    Attend an Admissions Event or join an upcoming campus tour to learn about our program and to see Roeper students and teachers engaging with each other on a typical day. 

    For more information, submit an Inquiry Form.
  • Step 2: Submit an Admissions Application

    Create a My Roeper Account and submit the Application along with the application fee online here. The Application fee is $75. Fees for applications submitted before December 1, 2023 are being waived.
  • Step 3: Submit a Financial Aid Application

    If you are applying for need-based financial aid, begin the process at the Clarity app.
  • Step 4: Submit an IQ test

    All applicants—Stage II through grade 12—must complete an IQ Test (WPPSI-IV or WISC-V are preferred). Submit a copy of the tester’s full, detailed report, including all subtest scores and interpretation of those scores to the Admissions Department. 

    Consult our referral list or directly schedule an IQ test with a licensed psychologist. All IQ test-related expenses are the responsibility of the applicant. An IQ test administered within the past three years may be considered valid. 
  • Step 5: Schedule a Parent Interview 

    Contact your admissions associate to schedule a parent interview.
  • Step 6: Submit Academic Records and a Teacher Report Form

    Send a signed Academic Records Release Form to your child’s current school. The school should submit copies of your child’s most recent academic report.

    From your MyRoeper account, digitally send the teacher report form to your child’s current teacher, which will be returned in confidence to the admissions department.
  • Step 7: Schedule Your Child's Skills Assessment and Classroom Visit

    Once all the above items are complete, an Admissions Associate will schedule your child’s classroom visit. Your child will spend one day (if entering Kindergarten) or two days (if entering first grade or above) with their peers in a homeroom following a typical class schedule. A teacher will briefly assess your child’s math and literacy skills. The visit will allow your child to experience a typical day at Roeper. 
Once all the above steps are complete, your child’s file will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. In certain cases, an additional interview or evaluation may be requested. If accepted, an offer of enrollment will be extended. In order to reserve a place for your child, this enrollment contract should be signed and submitted with the deposit by the date indicated.

IQ Testing

If you have a copy of your child’s IQ test administered within the past three years, it may be considered valid. If not, you will need to make an appointment for your child to take an individual IQ test administered by a psychologist.

Costs for IQ testing are not included in Roeper's application fee. You may have your child tested by one of the psychologists on our referral list or by any licensed psychologist. Contact the provider directly for an appointment. We prefer the WPPSI-IV or the WISC-V.

Please send a copy of the tester’s full, detailed report, including all subtest scores and interpretation of those scores, to the Admissions Department.
