Application Process

Applications for 2024–2025 are now closed. Applications for 2025–2026 open September 1.

The application process is designed so that we (and you) can be sure that your child will find joy in our unique learning environment. Not every child will thrive with the pace and rigor in our curriculum. Each part of our application process is a puzzle piece that helps us build the picture of your child’s personality, potential, and progress. Your admission checklist will include the following pieces: 

  • Parent questionnaire

  • Report Card or Progress Report

  • Teacher recommendation

  • Individual assessment

  • Interview/classroom assessment

Applicants will take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). Applicants in Grades 3 and 4 may be invited to participate in a shadow day.

Grades 6–8

Applicants will take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). Based on the results of the ISEE, applicants with potential for our program will be interviewed by a member of our Middle School Team.
