We will ask for the photograph, the rest of the application and the records at a later date.

Application Fee

The $50 application fee is non-refundable. Once your child’s application becomes active, he/she may be offered a place at any time, such as over the summer or in the middle of the school year. If at any time you no longer want a placement for a particular school year, you must notify us to change the status of your application. You may cancel the application or change it to a subsequent school year. You will not lose your place on the waiting list by changing to another school year. When we offer a place to your child, the application is canceled. If you do not accept the place, but want your child to be considered for another school year, you will need to reapply and submit another application fee. Applicants are automatically considered for enrollment in subsequent years if there is not a place for them for the first year in which they apply. You do not need to reapply or submit another application fee.

Visit For a Day

As part of our enrollment process, children visit NCCL School for a day. We do not have an entrance exam. The visit enables us to get to know your child and gives your child a chance to see the school and meet the teachers. A visit does not mean that we will have a place for your child.


Admission decisions are made by the staff, based on the needs of the school and the particular openings available. Our goal is to have a school population that is well-balanced as to age and gender, with parents who support our educational goals and methods. Priority is given to siblings of children already enrolled in the school.

Newark Center for Creative Learning admits students without regard to race, color, religious beliefs, ancestry, or national origin.
