Admissions Online

Welcome to Baker Demonstration School and thank you for your interest.

Request More Information

Should you desire more information than is available on our school's website, please Request More Information and our Admissions Office will contact you. If you have not already done so, please consider making an appointment to visit. We would very much like to meet you and encourage you to tour our school and campus. This is an opportunity for families to ask questions about our Enrollment Management Team and see our classrooms in action.

How to Apply

We encourage families to begin the application process as early as October 1 for the 2024-25 school year. All application materials are submitted through this online admission portal and provides parents/guardians the ability to track the status of their child's application. To begin the Online Application process, Create an Account. Upon account creation, you will receive an email containing a verification link. Once your email address has been verified, log in to your account and Create A New Student Application for your child. You will then have the flexibility to log in and out of your account and access your open application.

In accordance with Illinois policy, Baker uses a September 1st birthday guideline when considering a student for admission:

  • PK: 3 or 4 years old by September 1
  • Kindergarten: 5 years old by September 1

A non-refundable fee of $85 per family must be submitted with each application. 

After submitting the application, you will be able to track your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account. In addition, you will be able to print the completed application, monitor when the school receives any applicable supplemental forms and, if necessary, reprint the forms.

We appreciate your interest and hope to assist you any way we can. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at 847-425-5800.
