The Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in Politz Day School of Cherry Hill! Our goal is to ensure a good match between each applicant and the school’s ability to meet his or her academic, social, emotional, and physical needs. The first step in the admissions process is a visit our school. Politz campus tours include an introductory meeting with our administration, along with visits to the classrooms, and are available by appointment throughout the year. Because we pride ourselves on a low student-teacher ratio, there is limited space available in each grade level.

The priority application deadline for the 2024-25 school year is January 31, 2024. Please note that Tuition Assistance for Preschool is facilitated by the Jewish Federation and the hard deadline for applying is March 29th. They will not accept Preschool Tuition Assistance applications after that date. Please email for more information.


  1. Please complete our Inquiry form. We will contact you ASAP to schedule a phone call meeting with our Admissions Department.

  2. Join us for a tour of our school. You will be able to schedule this during your phone call or by emailing

  3. Complete the online Application Form (this is only for new families to Politz). There is a non-refundable $100 per family application submission fee:

Please Note:

  • Toddler Applicants must be 18 months old by December 1st, 2024
  • 2 Year Applicants must be two years old by October 1st, 2024
  • 3 Year Applicants must be three years old by October 1st, 2024
  • Pre-K Applicants must be four years old by October 1st, 2024
  • Kindergarten applicants must be five years old by October 1st, 2024.


Once we have received the Principal/Teacher Evaluation from your child’s current school, along with the most recent report cards (1st-8th Grade), and Current IEP or Psychoeducational Assessment (if applicable), we will schedule a visit day for your child (K-8). After this, our Admissions committee will meet and evaluate the full application.

Upon acceptance, you must complete the online school enrollment contract sent to you along with a non-refundable $350 deposit per child, in order to secure a spot in the classroom. (Contracts completed within two weeks of the child’s acceptance will receive a $350 credit on next year’s tuition.). Please note, your child’s place can only be guaranteed if registered within the two week window from acceptance.

All new applications will be reviewed beginning Feb. 1st. Parents will be notified of each applicant’s acceptance as soon as possible after that date, assuming we have received all the required documentation.

Applications received after January 31, 2024 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
