  • Admission Timeline

    After the required school visit and receiving all required application materials and testing results, our Admission Committee will review each student’s credentials in relation to the number of available spaces for enrollment. In all cases, the first most critical determinant is the assessed academic fit between a student and the school. The Admission staff will contact parents regarding their student’s admission decision in accordance with the following timeline:

    • October 1 - Applications open for next school year.
    • November 1 - Families of prospective and returning families may submit the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) application.
    • January - Admission Office will contact families for the required assessments and Shadow Day.
    • February 15 - Admission Decision; those who applied for financial aid will also be notified of their aid award.
    • March 1 - Accepted applicants who wish to reserve a place in the incoming class must remit the required enrollment deposit and contract.
    • Applicants who apply for admission after February 1 will be considered on a space-available basis and will be notified on a rolling basis, typically beginning in mid-March and then within two weeks of completing the required application materials.
