Admissions

How to Apply

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.

If you prefer a paper application, please contact the Admissions Office at (510) 285-9617 or email sdhanjal@spes.org to request one.

Steps to apply (Checklist):

2. Submit an application through Ravenna. The required components of a complete application are:
  • Application
