Boarding Student Admission



We strive to make our process as personal as possible to give your family every opportunity to ask questions, learn about the school, and gain a sense of the community. The process of making an educational choice for your children deserves time, respect, and consideration, and we hope to be a resource to you as you navigate the choices available to you.

Boarding Student Admission typically follows these steps:

  1. Inquire: Submit a request for more information about the school.
  2. Learn: A member of our admission team will call you to discuss the school and answer any questions you may have.
  3. Apply online: Click here for our online application. For summer applicants, we recommend applying online immediately after the inquiry process to help the process run smoothly and in a timely manner.
  4. Test: Schedule and take your SSAT (required for those who live near a testing center providing the SSAT. Some exceptions granted due to proximity or extenuating circumstance), TOEFL, IELTs, or other admission test. 
  5. Visit: Schedule a visit to our campuses to see the facilities and meet with the admission staff, Division Head, and see classes and activities in action.
  6. Interview: A member of our admission team will interview you on the phone, via Skype, or in person.
  7. Decisions: The process from application to decision generally takes 2-3 weeks after all application components are in. Early action contracts are available for exceptional students.
  8. Deposit: Make your deposit and begin your journey as a STU family!
