  • Transcripts from the previous two years.
  • If relevant, any supplemental testing (IEP, psychological-educational testing evaluation, etc.)

  • Students who do not identify English as their first language will be required to submit an English proficiency test such as TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo. Students who do not submit test scores with the enrollment application will be automatically enrolled in ESL.

​We also accept the Standard Application Online through the SSAT website for boarding students applying to multiple schools. 

Campus tours are back on! If you are not able to visit us in person, we do have a virtual tour that enables you to see campus. To sign up for a tour, please fill out our inquiry form here

After we have all of your admission materials, our Admission Committee will review your application and make an acceptance decision. You will hear from us within two weeks of completing your application. After acceptance parents will need to complete our online enrollment process to begin your journey as a STU family!

Stuart Hall offers rolling admission, accepting students throughout the school year. However, we do limit the size of our classes and residential life program, so we recommend that you apply for the 2024-2025 school year as early as possible. Please contact Tanya Farrell, Dean of Enrollment at or 540/213-7779 with any questions. The online application can be found here.
