For students applying to Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8, three steps are needed in order to complete the application process: Tour, Application, and Evaluation of applicant's readiness for the Choir School program (for Grades K-8 this will also include a vocal evaluation).
Once the application is complete and has been received, you will be contacted by the Admissions Office to schedule a time for your child to come in and complete their evaluation. Members of The Madeleine Choir School staff will administer all portions of the evaluation.
Applicants will be evaluated as a group (or individually if necessary) for social, emotional and academic readiness as determined by members of the Choir School staff. During this time, parents will meet with Choir School administration.
For Kindergarten - Grade 8:
Applicants will be assessed on concepts that may include phonemic awareness, reading readiness or proficiency, math concepts, and writing skills.
Applicants will meet with a member of our music staff to gauge the child's present tone quality, pitch perception and listening skills. (not required for Pre-K)
