What is the Enrollment process at Christopher Academy? 

The Enrollment process is rolling throughout the year, with new families enrolled as space permits. We recommend that families begin the admission process early in the fall prior to the year of their planned enrollment.  Families should tour our school or attend an Open House, submit an application and schedule a child visit in order to be considered for admission. 

Step 1: Request Information/Parent Visit

Prospective parents are invited and are encouraged to tour the school and observe our classes. Please request an information packet and/or schedule a visit by calling Nicole Murphy at 908-233-7447 or Elissa Young at 908-322-4652 or emailing: nmurphy@christopheracademy.com or eyoung@christopheracademy.com
