Thank you to those who sat for our Entrance-Scholarship Exam this October. 

Transfer applicants and late freshman applicants will take a modified test that will be scheduled on an individual basis with the Admissions Office.

Request Materials

Request the following information from your present school:

  • An unofficial copy of your daughter's academic transcript that should include all marks and standardized test scores
  • One recommendation from a teacher who knows the applicant especially well and can speak to her academic ability and character. Your recommendation request will be sent as part of your application. 

Transfer and late applicants should contact the Admissions Office to request copies of the forms. For both 9th grade and transfer applicants, an Admissions decision cannot be made until we have received all materials.
