Saturday Sneak Peeks

Saturday Sneak Peeks are back for the 2022-2023 admissions season! Finding the right school fit involves the whole family, and we want your children to have a chance to experience New City School for themselves. In addition to their assessment screening visit, applicant children have early access to sign up for our Saturday Sneak Peek classes in January and February—see below for descriptions and recommended age groups. All classes will begin at 10:00AM. For in-person classes, health screenings and mask-wearing will be in place. Registration is required: fill out the form below to get started!

  • January 8th & February 5th: Virtual Story Time With Heidi (ages 2-5)
    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. Grab a snack (and some coffee for the grown-ups!) and get ready to sing, dance, and listen to stories! This school year, Story Time is taking place virtually: registrants for these Sneak Peeks will be added to the mailing list to receive each month’s video, and will have access to our gallery of past Story Time videos!
  • January 22nd: POSTPONED
    “Snow Much Fun” (ages 4-6)

    Please note that "Snow Much Fun" has been postponed due to the recent increase in COVID cases in the St. Louis area. We will communicate a new date when safe to gather. Thank you for understanding!
  • January 29th: Virtual Music Class with Brian (all ages)
    Join music specialist Brian for a morning of movement, singing, and percussion activities that explore New City School and beyond! Students do not need any supplies other than themselves.
  • February 5th: Tinker Saturday with Eric (1st - 6th Grade applicants)
    Build, create, and problem-solve in The Tom Hoerr Innovation Lab! 1st-6th Graders can enjoy time to explore and experiment with our science specialist, Eric. Students will complete a STEAM activity and use batteries, wires, and motors to create unique artwork, all of which will also have parts made using our 3D printers and laser cutters. Participants will be able to take home their creations at the end of the day.

Parents and caregivers will remain at school while their child participates in any in-person activities, during which time they will have opportunities to talk with administrators and to ask any questions they may have about New City.

If you have questions about our admissions timeline, please contact Director of Admission and Enrollment Management, Abby Hillman. Dates and deadlines for the 2022-2023 school year admissions cycle will be announced in late summer 2021.
