How to Apply

We know that enrolling in a school is a big decision.

We’re here to talk.

Our admissions process is designed to inform students and families about who we are, and includes five steps:

Step 1: Schedule a Tour

The New School is best experienced in person. Join us for an Open House or schedule a private meeting and tour with a member of our admissions team. Your student is welcome to attend!

Step 2: Create an Admissions Account

You can easily submit an application online. We use Finalsite Enrollment to manage all of our application documents and forms. Create an account to begin the application process.

*Our application includes a $50 application fee and asks for the following documents: an application form, a transcript, two teacher recommendation forms, a writing sample, and any educational testing. These documents are easily submitted and managed through your online admissions account.

Step 3: Student Visit Day

Once the application process is initiated, our Admissions team will reach out to schedule a visit day for your student. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience life as a New Schooler – to check out our classes, campus, and community.

Step 4: Acceptance Decision

Once all application documents are submitted and the student has had a visit day, we will make an acceptance decision.

*For midyear transfer applicants, decisions are made on a rolling basis.
**For fall-enrollment applicants, acceptance decisions begin in mid-January and run through April 1, or on a rolling basis thereafter depending on space availability.
