Please note the application deadline to apply for 2019-20 has passed. We will begin the application process for 2020-21 September 3, 2019.
We encourage you to visit campus early in your exploration process. Students are welcome to attend. Tours are highly recommended but not required.
Students do not need to have a submitted application in order to visit.
Visits for all students include attending classes with your host.
Applicants to grade 9 will participate in group assessment activities, and applicants to grades 10-12 will have an informal one-on-one interview with a faculty member.
This short form will tell us a little bit about your child's interests and should be submitted at least seven days prior to the student visit so we can find a compatible host.
Students applying for grades 6–12 are required to take an admission test during the current school year. Please visit our Admission Testing page for the SSAT testing schedule, registration information, alternative tests, and more.
Character Skills Snapshot
Students applying to grades 6-12 have the option of including results from the Character Skills Snapshot in their application. It is a 20-30 minute online assessment that can be taken on a computer with internet access. The assessment is free for those registered to take the SSAT. If you are not registered to take the SSAT the cost is $35. Register online through your SSAT account. Learn more about the Snapshot in this FAQ.
The online application includes a series of questions for the student as well as the parents/guardians. This is your best opportunity to share information about your family. We also require the student to submit a graded paper from a current class that includes the teacher's comments. All applications will be read by the admission committee.
Send the online evaluation form to your child's current math & English teachers. Please do not send these requests until after November 1; this will allow the teachers time to get to know your child. You should have the teacher's full name and email available when you are ready to send each evaluation.
Print, sign, and submit a records request form to your child's current school.
