Applying to 体育投注开户

We appreciate your interest in The 体育投注开户 School, and we look forward to sharing more about our warm, inspiring and vibrant community with you and your family.

Application and event reservations open on Sep. 1, 2019. We recommend you submit an inquiry so we can keep you posted when the application season and reservations open. We look forward to meeting you!

Our standard points of entry are kindergarten and grades 3, 6 and 9. New students may enter 体育投注开户 at all grade levels except grade 12. In grades 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 the number of openings depends on attrition and there are usually more qualified applicants than spaces.

After much consideration and thoughtful planning, 体育投注开户 has made the tough decision to phase out our preschool program to make room for the move of our middle school to the Union Avenue campus in fall 2021. For the 2020-21 school year we are only accepting applications for our Transitional Kindergarten program. If your child will be 5 between July 1, 2020 - and November 30, 2020, we encourage you to apply for transitional kindergarten (TK)

We invite you to submit an inquiry and create an account on Ravenna. 体育投注开户 has partnered with Ravenna Solutions, a very user-friendly application, that streamlines the admission process for our families. Through your Ravenna account, you will be able to receive notifications from 体育投注开户, register for 体育投注开户 admission events, and apply and track your progress toward application completion.

The entrance exam is just one component we use to evaluate an application. At 体育投注开户 we value all facets of a student and take into consideration many aspects beyond a test score, such as interests, character and love of learning when evaluating for admission. We use standardized testing as common assessment tool because applicants come from a wide variety of academic programs.

International Students

International students applying to The 体育投注开户 School must meet the same admission standards as domestic students, and successfully complete all stages of the highly selective admission process. We do not have a separate pool for international applicants. 体育投注开户 has a very rigorous academic program, and all students must be fluent in reading, writing and speaking English. Unless a student has been attending a school where their courses are taught in English, it is unlikely that they would qualify.

While 体育投注开户 does not offer ESL curriculum during the regular school year, we do offer a robust English Language Institute in the summer. For more information, visit our ELI website or contact ELI@harker.org.

Late Applications

We expect that the majority of places for fall will be filled by candidates who make the January deadlines and regular acceptance announcement in March. We may have the opportunity to extend offers of admission to a few individuals who complete their files after the regular deadline. These acceptance decisions will be made on a rolling basis and will depend on available space. Please contact us if you have any questions.
