The Birch Wathen Lenox School is an institution devoted to enabling each student to achieve his or her greatest potential. It is our primary objective to select students and families who will take full advantage of our fine educational program.

The Birch Wathen Lenox School adheres to the admissions guidelines developed by ISAAGNY (Independent School Admissions Association of Greater New York). The School maintains membership in the ERB (Education Records Bureau), NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools), and is accredited by NYSAIS (New York State Association of Independent Schools.)

Families who demonstrate need may apply for financial aid. Go to School and Student Services by NAIS for the appropriate parent financial statement forms. In addition, the School provides alternative methods of financing for families who qualify.



The Birch Wathen Lenox School is a proud member of the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). Founded in 1965, ISAAGNY aims to ensure orderly, professional, and equitable admissions processes at member schools: we do so by observing a shared admissions timeline, engaging in professional development to hone our collective craft, exchanging resources and best practices, and more. The resulting spirit of cooperation serves schools, families, and nearly 30,000 students across greater New York.
