ADMISSION PROCEDURES FOR THE 2018–2019 ACADEMIC YEAR

We do not currently have space for new students in Class VIII for the 2018-2019 academic year.  However, unanticipated openings are always a possibility.  Should a place become available, the School will give full consideration to a Wait List application.

List of 7 items.

  • 1. WAIT LIST APPLICATION AND FEE

    The deadline for submitting a Wait List application was 5:00 pm on November 20, 2017.  It is recommended that applications be submitted as early as possible.  The Wait List application cannot be submitted online; please download and submit the form by mail.  A non-refundable application fee of $75 is due upon submission.  This fee is waived for families requesting financial assistance.
  • 2. TOUR and INTERVIEW

    An individual tour for applicants and their parents is given by an Upper School student and is followed by an interview with a member of the Admission staff. After submitting an application, you will receive an email inviting you to make an appointment. Visits take place during the school day and last approximately one and a half hours. The deadline for scheduling a tour and interview is December 4, 2017.
  • 3. INDEPENDENT SCHOOL ENTRANCE EXAMINATION (ISEE)

    Brearley is one of many New York City schools that require the ISEE examination, administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB). Candidates must register for a test date no later than December so that we receive the results in time for the first round of decisions. You may register for the exam online at http://www.erblearn.org. Please list Brearley as one of the schools to which you are applying so that the test results will be sent directly to us. Our school code is 333475.
