How to Apply

Applications for the 2020-2021 school year were due January 17, 2020. We are now in rolling admissions and are accepting applications for certain grades only for the '20-'21 school year. If you are interested please call the Admissions Office 510-285-9617 or email immediately. 

We use an online application platform called Ravenna. To submit an application, families will need to create an account or log in using an existing account. Through Ravenna, you will also be able to register for events, schedule a tour, and schedule a shadow visit (grades 6-8.)

Steps to apply:

1. Schedule a campus visit by completing an online inquiry form.

2. Submit an application through Ravenna. The required components of a complete application are:
  • Application
  • Teacher Recommendations (one for kindergarten and two for grades 1-8)
  • Transcript (for grades 1-8)
  • ISEE Exam (grades 6-8 only). St. Paul’s School code is #054150. Register here. Please arrange to take the exam by February 9, 2020 (Dec 1, 2019 for siblings of St. Paul's students or alumni applying to grades 6-8). 
  • On campus assessment (schedule through Ravenna after submitting your application)
3. Schedule a half-day shadow visit (grades 6-8). You can access dates once the application is submitted via Ravenna.
