Because of our small school size, only a limited number of openings are available in any given year. To assess an applicant, the committee considers achievement and motivation, appraises the standards of the previous school’s curriculum, and for older children, considers the time and effort that the student has dedicated to class and out-of-class activities. In our Early Childhood applicants we are seeking families who value our early childhood philosophy and want a school that will provide a healthy, balanced, and nurturing childhood experience.

Application Steps

Step 1: Online Application

Complete online application though the Blackbaud web portal which follows below and pay the $75 application fee.

Step 2: Official Records
  • Request that your child’s current school send two years of academic grades directly to Office of Admissions.
  • Have all recommendation forms (available on your Blackbaud checklist)
  • International Applicants applying to Grade 6 and above must submit either TOEFL (Grades 9-12) or TOEFL Junior (Grades 6-8) scores.
Step 3: Interview & Class Visit

Once all required materials are received, we will call to schedule an interview. The interviews are structured in the following way:

  • Early Childhood interviews include both parents and the child and generally last one hour. They include a conversation between the parents and the teacher, as well as a short period of time for the teacher to engage with the child.
  • Applicants for the first grade will be invited to visit one of the mixed-age kindergarten classes for a morning, followed by an hour long first grade readiness evaluation conducted by one of our trained early childhood faculty members.
  • Applicants for second grade and above will meet with the Admissions Director, Principal of that Division and faculty members. Parents are welcome to attend.
  • Students will be required to spend two or three days with the class they are applying to before a decision is made. Decisions will be communicated shortly after the visit.
  • International Applicants who reside outside of the area will be invited to a SKYPE interview with the Admissions Director, Principal of the Division applying to, an ESL teacher, and other faculty.
