How to apply

Admissions at Putnam Indian Field School is a multi-step process.

  • Call for a brochure. With it, you will receive a current tuition schedule and an application. You may also download an application. To apply, send in the completed application with a small photo of your child and a $65 application fee.
  • Call Maria Sabito, Director of Admissions, at 203-661-4629 or email her at maria.sabito@ to schedule an appointment for a tour. Bring your child to this appointment. Maria will take you around the school, explain our philosophy and methods, and answer questions. There is no testing involved, and you and your child will not be separated during the tour.
  • Admissions are done on a rolling basis. Usually the youngest classes are accepted first (in January and early February).  Applicants to older classes will be accepted after the re-enrollment period for existing students (late February), when we know how many spaces we can fill. If you receive a call that your child has been accepted, an enrollment contract will be mailed to you.
  • If you wish to accept the place, return the enrollment contract with a $3000 tuition deposit. The deposit will be applied to second semester tuition.

Preference is given to siblings of existing students, legacies, and faculty children.

Putnam Indian Field School accepts applicants without regard to race, color, creed, sex or ethnicity.
