Let’s dive into important Admissions details:

Sibling applications are due in November, and affiliated families should reach out to Pamela directly for further details. New family applications are due on January 14, 2021, with decisions shared on March 17, 2022.

The following steps must be completed, submitted, or scheduled before the Admissions Committee can review an application for admission:  

  • Complete your application for admissions
  • Request a teacher recommendation and student records from your current teacher and school. 
  • Schedule your student and parent conversations. Student and parent conversations (virtual or in-person) are required for the admissions process and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis once the parent portion of an application is submitted. 
  • For Kindergarten applicants: video assessments are required, and details will be released in early November.
  • For applicants grades 1st through 3rd: individual assessments will be provided once your application is received. 
  • For applicants grades 4th through 8th, Math and English assessment work may be found online in your application portal and should be submitted before the January application deadline. 

This may seem like a lot, but we are here for you. If you would like to schedule a time to talk about the process or if we might answer any questions, please feel free to contact the Admissions Team at (415) 472-1833. We look forward to continuing this journey with your family.
