The Process for Freshmen Applicants

Our early admissions season begins the August prior to the year of potential enrollment and runs until mid-March. If any spots are remaining, they are available during our rolling admissions period.  Our application is entirely digital and can be accessed here. Two Open Houses are held October 23 and December 5.  You may RSVP here.


The Process for Transfer Applicants

Transfer students are accepted on a case-by-case basis throughout the year. If you feel your child would benefit from a mid-year transfer, please contact our Admissions Director.

All applications are submitted through Ravenna, though we ask you to submit an unofficial student transcript for review prior to starting the formal application process.
