Step 1: Submit an application online

All application materials are available on our website including the online application and recommendation and transcript forms to give to your teachers and school.

Applications for the 2020-2021 school were due December 16, 2019. If you would like to submit a late application for your child, please click here for our Online Application.  NOTE: late applications will be processed only once all other applicants have been scheduled. We appreciate your patience.

Step 2: Register for the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE)

  • You can register for the ISEE through the ERB website or by calling 800.446.0320.

  • Applicants should take the ISEE no later than January 20, 2020. Faculty/sibling applicants should take the ISEE no later than December 16, 2019.

  • Please register for a test date as soon as possible because local sites fill up quickly.

Step 3: Submit Teacher Recommendations and Transcript

In addition to the application and interview, the following are needed to complete an applicant's file:

  • Confidential Teacher Recommendations from the student's current English and Math teachers. If a student has one teacher for math and English, the second recommendation may be submitted by an academic teacher who has taught the student during the past two years. 

  • Confidential Administrative Recommendation from a school administrator who is familiar with the student. 

  • School Records which include the student's current first semester grades, grades from the preceding two academic years, and all standardized test scores. 

  • We must receive these recommendations and school records by January 20, 2020.

Step 4: Visit Campus for a Tour and Interview

Once we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule a campus tour and interview.

Campus visits run about 1.5 hours.  Parent(s) and student should come for the campus visit which includes a family interview, student interview and a campus tour.
