Call 908.756.1234 to confirm your student’s application has been received.
Cresthaven Academy’s public lottery is held in January/February of each year. To obtain the results of our most recent lottery, you may call our main office at 908.756.1234.
Families still interested in applying for the current school year are encouraged to do so at this time, as any new applications received will automatically be added to our waitlist. Students on the wait list will be offered a seat if one becomes available, and on a first-come-first serve basis. However, closer to January, all valid applications will go into the lottery.
Families interested in applying for kindergarten in the 2020-21, 2021-22, or 2022-23 school years may do so at any time. The public lotteries for these classes will be held in January preceding the beginning of that school year.
Current Cresthaven Academy scholars with siblings, must apply and specify that they are siblings in order to qualify for sibling preference. If you have questions, please call our main office to discuss.
Requirements to Apply:
- All applicants must be Plainfield residents.
- Kindergarten applicants must be 5 years old by October 1, 2020 for the 2020-21 school year.
