STEP TWO:  Prepare Your Required Documents.

From the Current School:  

  • School transcripts from the last two years
  • Most recent report cards
  • Three recommendations: (Math, English, Administrator) 

From You (Parent/Guardian & Applicant):

  • Parent Statement: Brief description (1-2 paragraphs of your child's character as you see them and that might not be mentioned in the other recommendations)
  • Student Essay: Short writing sample of fiction or non-fiction showing the writing style and student's voice. It can be old (within the past semester) or new writing. No more than one page please!
  • Interview: The interview occurs via Zoom and focuses on the applicant for 20-30 minutes and then the parent(s)/guardian(s) for 20 minutes. We sometimes ask for an impromptu writing sample from the student so please have two computers ready so that the student can write while we speak with the adults. You may schedule this session in your application checklist in the calendar listed "Admission Zoom Interview".


  •  WE ARE TEST OPTIONAL. If you indeed take a standardized test, please see Step Four. However, it is NOT required for the 2022-23 school year application.   
  • If your child has an IEP/504 plan and/or a neuropsychological evaluation, please communicate this to our admission director to arrange a support evaluation with our school counselor and learning plan specialist. Please upload all documents into the checklist as additional documents. Please do this as early as possible so our team can review this prior to the Jan. 31 deadline.
  • If your first language is not English, please see the International Application page for REQUIRED language assessment criteria.
