Step 3: Schedule a Student Visit

Applicants for PreSchool, PreKindergarten and Kindergarten spend 90 minutes interacting with peers and teachers. Students applying to 1st through 8th Grade stay for a full school day in their current grade and are interviewed by a member of the Educational Leadership Team.

Step 4: Additional Application Requirements

Applicants for Grades 6-8 are asked take the Middle Level SSAT, ISEE, or an in-house assessment.

Step 5: Admission Decisions

We have a rolling admission policy for all grade levels, meaning we review applications as they are submitted and send notifications within two weeks of files being completed. A complete file includes an application, a school visit, at least two teacher references, school records and, in some cases, testing.
