admissions checklist

5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Applicants:

  • Admissions Application
  • Parent Questionnaire (tell us about your student!)
  • Parent Conversation (with the Director of Middle School Admissions)
  • Student Visit 
  • Student Interview (with a Dean of the Middle School) 
  • Teacher Recommendations (current Math & English teacher)
  • School Records/Transcripts (last year's and current grades required)
  • Admissions Testing: ISEE or SSAT**

    **If you are seeking academic support or accommodations, we will require a copy of your child's most recent psycho-educational evaluation (completed within the last three years).

As I often remind our students in Middle School, grades and awards don’t define you. What does define you is this: Are you working your very hardest? Do you treat everyone around you with kindness and respect? Do you ask for help when you need it? Do you own and grow from your mistakes?
