Visit New City School

Thank you for your interest in New City School!

We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. Due to guidelines from local government and health organizations in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19, in-person tours will be offered only to families who have completed an application for enrollment. The tour will take place after school hours or on a Saturday.

During this time, we are also offering meetings with our Admissions Team via Zoom so that interested families can get answers to their questions about our school. Click here to get started! We are also looking forward to a number of virtual events throughout the year, and hope you can join us.

Saturday Story Time 

Join us one Saturday morning each month for stories and songs with Heidi Kehle (one of our wonderful preschool teachers), who will be sharing her stories and musical magic through Story Time each month. Stories and activities are designed for children from infant/toddler through 2nd Grade. 

Saturday Story Time is going virtual for the 20-21 school year! Grab a snack (and some coffee for the grown-ups!) and get ready to sing, dance, and listen to stories with Heidi. Sign up here to stay up to date about upcoming Story Time events (and to receive this school year's monthly videos!)

Saturday Story Times through the rest of the 20-21 school year will be on: March 6th, April 10th, and May 1st.  

For current New City families: Please click here if you'd like to receive reminder emails about Saturday Story Time. Access information is also available on your myNewCity calendar. If you are having trouble accessing your myNewCity account, please contact Rosemary Davis (
