For 2021-22 applicants, our application portal will open in July  and the deadline is December 20, 2020.

Five Easy Steps:

  1. Complete our online application, which includes questions for both students and parents.
  2. Pay the $50 application fee online.
  3. Submit a current transcript 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.
  6. Register for your student to take the ISEE test which is offered at many schools around town, or schedule them for the Griffin assessment. We accept either test. We’ll offer the ISEE on January 9, 2021 and the Griffin assessment will be offered on Saturday, December 5, 2020 at 9am, and again on Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 9am.

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