About the High School – some quick facts
High School Application Process for 2021-2022
Places in the 9th grade are available depending on attrition from our current 8th grade class and a small expansion in class size from Middle School to High School. Using the past few years as a guide, we expect to be able to offer around 15 places to new students for the fall of 2021.
Please note: Grades 10 and 11 are not usual entry points but we will happily accept applications and process supplementary materials (see below) in case of an opening. We will schedule interviews on a case-by-case basis if a spot arises. There is no fee to submit a 10th or 11th grade application and the deadline to apply is Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
Virtual High School Open Houses
-Any student interested in applying to the 9th grade must attend one of our virtual open house events offered in October. Each session will follow a webinar format and will be an opportunity to learn about our school’s philosophy, program and community. During a typical open house you will have the chance to hear from our Head of School as well as from our High School division head and current high school students. We devote a portion of each event to a Q&A. To sign up, please visit our online registration page. Please note: It is not necessary to have submitted an application before attending an open house.
Virtual Open Houses on Diversity and Institutional Equity
-We will be hosting two virtual open houses on diversity and institutional equity this November for interested families. These events will follow a webinar format and are open to families applying to any/all grades. You can sign up for one of these events at any point in the application process by going here.
Virtual Small Group Information Sessions for Applicants
-Students who decide to complete a high school application will be asked to attend a small-group virtual information and Q&A session later in the fall. These sessions will be hosted by our Head of High School and our Assistant Director of Admission. We will reach out about scheduling these events after we receive a completed online application.
