Private Day and Boarding School Applications

Parents often ask us, “When should we start the application process for private school?” For a variety of reasons, we believe the earlier, the better. Rather than waiting until applications go live in the fall, we encourage families to begin in the spring and summer to allow for advance planning and identifying the best use of their child’s summer time when schedules tend to be less busy.


Holly has begun meeting with families of 7th graders applying for private day and boarding schools for high school in Fall 2020. She uses this time to get to know the students and their profiles and to develop preliminary school lists. Some families have already started visiting prospective schools. Throughout the coming months, Holly will continue to work with them focusing on interview skills, fine-tuning school lists, and mapping out the paperwork and testing deadlines. By the time the application cycle officially begins, these students will be well positioned to complete and submit their applications.
