Admissions

How to Apply

We have limited openings in certain grades for the '20-'21 school year. If you are interested please call the Admissions Office 510-285-9617 or email admissions@spes.org. 

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 and schedule a tour.

Steps to apply (download checklist):

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

2. Submit an application through Ravenna. The required components of a complete application are:
  • Application (download hard copy)
  • Teacher Recommendation(s) Form
  • Transcript (for grades 1-8)
  • Assessment:
    • In order to protect student health and safety, all assessments will be virtual this year. We are setting our assessment dates and will provide that information as soon as it is available.
    • Kindergarten: We will provide directions for activities that families will record their child doing. Families will then submit these videos as their child's assessment.
    • Grades 1-8: We will conduct assessments via Zoom. 
  • One-on-One Conversation
    • This is dedicated time for the parents/guardians in your family to connect directly with a member of the Admissions Office. 
3. More information to come about virtual visits for prospective students applying to grades 6-8.
