Start the application process as early as possible, since most private schools’ deadlines are in January for the upcoming school year. Most schools recommend submitting applications in the fall to give you and your student plenty of time to submit all necessary documentation and complete testing and interviews. Check with each individual school for specific details, but using our application checklist will help guide you right along.
1. Take a campus tour or attend an open house event.
2. Fill out application for admissions.
3. Interview with school admissions officer.
4. Submit the following: ISEE results, transcript requests, current administrator’s and English and math teachers’ recommendations.

It’s never too late! Contact the school—many offer rolling admissions if space is available.
