As a prospective student and family, the place to learn more about Griffin School and start an application is at an open house. Our 2017 Fall Open House events are scheduled for Thursday, September 21, 5:30-7pm, Thursday, October 19, 5:30-7pm and Thursday, November 30, 5:30-7pm. If you’d like to attend one of those dates, let us know at admissions@griffinschool.org. We also offer group tours each Thursday morning at 9am. RSVP here and let us know which Thursday works for you. If you’d like to set up an individual meeting with our Admissions Director to check out the school further and get a sense whether our philosophy, programs, and environment look like a good fit for your student, give us a call at 512-454-5797.

Five Easy Steps:

  1. Complete our online application.
  2. Submit a current transcript and any other relevant academic or psychological assessments or evaluations that you have.
  3. Pay the $50 application fee.
  4. Schedule a day for your son or daughter to be at Griffin School for an interview with the Admissions Committee (made up of our Admissions Director and two student representatives) and to attend a day of classes hosted by one of our current students.
  5. Register for your student to take the ISEE test or arrange an academic assessment at Griffin School (rsvp for Dec. 3rd at 9am or Dec. 9th at 9am, admissions@griffinschool.org). We accept either test. We will offer the ISEE at Griffin School on December 2, 2017 and March 3, 2018.

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.

For 2018-19 applicants, our early decision deadline is December 19, 2017 and our standard deadline is March 9, 2018.  We do accept applications on a rolling basis until a class is full so give us a call or send us an email to inquire about room. Our deadline for financial aid applications is March 9th, 2018.  You can schedule to take the ISEE in Austin by clicking here and sending your scores to Griffin School. Alternately, you can register for a Griffin School Assessment on December 3rd or December 9th, 2017 by contacting our Admissions Director. We are currently scheduling shadow days for prospective students on Tuesdays, from late-September through mid-May.  Contact our Admissions Director to schedule a tour, shadow day or set up a time to meet: admissions@griffinschool.org.

We make every attempt to help families work through the financial barriers that often arise when considering private school tuition expenses. Let us work with you on the financing options that are available. Various tuition payment plans and low-interest tuition loans are offered. In addition, families with financial need may apply for tuition assistance in the spring for the following school year.
