ADMISSION PROCEDURES FOR THE 2019–2020 ACADEMIC YEAR

This year we are accepting applications to a Wait List for Class V. While we are uncertain if space will be available for the 2019-2020 academic year, we encourage those who are interested to complete the application process. It has been our experience that openings often occur.

List of 6 items.

  • 1. APPLICANT SCHOOL VISIT

    A school visit for your daughter, along with a small group of other wait list applicants, will be scheduled after your application has been received. The visit, which lasts about 90 minutes, includes an assessment of the applicant's academic skills. The Head of Middle School Student Life will be available for a short Q&A at the time of drop off. The deadline for scheduling a student visit is November 28, 2018
  • 2. PARENT SCHOOL VISIT

    Parents will be invited to meet with the Director of Middle and Upper School Admission and tour the School based on the availability of space and an applicant's performance during the small group visit. 
  • 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 2018; November testing dates are preferable. 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 ISEE school code is 333475.
  • 4. OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT AND TEACHER REFERENCES

    Transcript release and teacher reference forms must to be given to the applicant's current school and teachers. So that they reflect as much of the term’s work as possible, references and transcripts may not be submitted before December 1, 2018. The deadline for submitting them is January 8, 2019.  
  • 5. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

    Families requesting financial assistance should check the appropriate box on the application. The request for aid must be made at the same time the application is submitted. (Please note that the application fee is waived for those applying for aid.) Please adhere strictly to all filing deadlines. Click here for further instructions on applying for financial assistance. 
  • 6. ADMISSION DECISIONS

    An applicant's file must be complete by January 11, 2019.  Should space become available in Class V, accepted candidates will be notified on or after February 5, 2019. The Wait List will be kept active throughout the spring for families who have not made commitments elsewhere.
