We still have certain grade openings for the 2017-2018 school year!

The application process for day students includes the following:

  • Online application with a $75 non-refundable application fee
  • Parent statement
  • Student records from the past two years, including academic and behavioral records, transcripts, and standardized test scores
  • A recommendation from your child’s primary classroom teacher if he or she is applying for preschool through grade 5
  • Recommendations from your child’s current Math and English teachers if he or she is applying for grades 6 through12
  • Student questionnaire if he or she is applying for grades 6 through 12
  • A classroom visit for your child scheduled by the Director of Enrollment Management and Administration
  • Preschool, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten applicants will be scheduled for assessments to ensure readiness

After the application process is complete, the Admissions Committee will review your child’s application at their next scheduled meeting. The Director of Enrollment Management and Administration will notify parents of the admissions decision.

Timing is everything

Applications are accepted throughout the year. However, if you complete your application during the peak admissions season from November to March, you will maximize the likelihood of enrolling your child.

Ask about tuition assistance and Malone Family Foundation scholarships

If you are applying for tuition assistance, please see the tuition assistance page for more information about this process. The family of any child offered admission in kindergarten through grade 12 may apply for tuition assistance based on financial need. We recommend that you complete your application for admission concurrently with your tuition assistance application. Please note preschool and pre-kindergarten applicants are not eligible for tuition assistance.

If your child is applying for a Malone Scholarship, parents should ensure that the full application, in addition to the criteria outlined for a Malone Scholarship, is submitted no later than April 1. Interviews will be scheduled during the month of April.

Information for international students may be found under the International Admissions tab.
