Pre and Lower School Admissions

Dear Prospective Families:

Greetings from Brooklyn Heights! We are pleased that you are considering Packer for your child.

Founded in 1845, Packer serves students from Preschool through Upper School in beautiful, landmarked buildings. As you read our Admissions materials, you will see that Packer combines a rich and innovative educational program with a longstanding commitment to a dynamic and diverse community.

At Packer’s Preschool and Lower School, students develop the foundations and tools for learning in interactive and developmentally appropriate settings. Packer believes that academic growth rests on a solid base of positive social and emotional development. To foster this goal, we emphasize the building of classroom communities where students learn to cooperate and collaborate as well as work independently. As they grow intellectually and socially, our students are prepared to enter the Middle School as confident and effective members of the school community.

We invite you to visit Packer to observe firsthand the energy and excellence of our teachers and students. We are particularly excited for you to experience our newly renovated and expanded Lower School, our beloved and spacious garden, and our newly opened Preschool (The Packer Early Learning Center) at 100 Clinton Street.

Open Houses are conducted in the fall. In order to arrange a visit, please view our Open House Schedule. Please note that we do not expect to be able to admit students to Pre-K Fours, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Grades. If spaces do become available, we will interview prospective students for those grades starting in mid-January.

We are delighted by your interest in Packer and look forward to assisting you in any way we can.

Denise Schwed
