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, 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
  • Parent Statement
  • 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 no later than February 10, 2019. 
  • 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.
