ADMISSION PROCEDURES TO THE WAIT LIST FOR THE 2019-2020 ACADEMIC YEAR

We do not currently have space for new students in Class VIII for the 2019-2020 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 to submit a Wait List application was 5:00 pm on November 20, 2018. 
  • 2. TOUR AND INTERVIEW

    An individual tour for applicants and their parents is given by an Upper School student. This is followed by an interview with a member of the Admissions 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 making an appointment is December 4, 2018.

    Brearley entrance examinations are required in addition to the standardized testing and take place at the School. Class VIII entrance examinations will be held on Monday, November 26, 2018.

  • 4. STANDARDIZED EXAMS

    Brearley is one of many New York City schools that requires a standardized test result. An applicant may take the ISEE or SSAT exam.
