Neskowin Valley School enrolls children of diverse backgrounds, interests, and talents. Because we believe a child thrives in a well-chosen learning environment, our admissions process gives time for the school, parents, and student to get to know each other. We consider the child’s learning style, academic interests, and needs, and look for qualities that suggest a good fit with our teaching and learning philosophy.


NVS seeks students who exhibit intellectual and creative potential and demonstrate a growing skill for self-directed learning and working harmoniously with others. Admission is granted on the basis of the school’s ability to enhance the growth of the child and the child’s ability to enrich the school community.
