The best way to learn more about Griffin is through an Open House! You can watch our most recent virtual one here: January 2021 Open House. We hope to host an in-person Open House in fall 2021.

For 2021-22 applicants, f you’d like to set up a tour or Zoom meeting with our Admissions Director to learn more about Griffin School, email caroline@griffinschool.org. If you’d like to receive a packet of info or join our mailing list, fill out an inquiry here! We are accepting applications for 2021-22 on a rolling basis and here’s how to get that started:

Five Easy Steps:

  2. Pay the $50 application fee online.
  3. Once you submitted the initial application, log back into the applicant portal to view the checklist. You can download a Release of Records to give to your current school, and/or upload a current transcript/grade report and any other relevant academic assessments or evaluations that you have.
  4. Complete the Student Short Essays (visible in the online application after submitting the initial form).
  5. Schedule a shadow day for your student to attend a day of classes hosted by one of our current students, and have lunch with members of our Admissions Committee.

This might sound like a lot, but it is really a pretty straight-forward and simple process that can be completed in a fews days if needed. Just give us a call and our Admissions Director will walk you through the application process.
