Our goal is to make your application process to AFS as simple and enjoyable as possible. At your earliest convenience, please apply online to begin. Steps in the application process include a completed parent statement, parent and student visits, a completed consent for release form and a teacher recommendation.

While there is no particular order in which required steps in the application process must be completed, the Admission Committee will only review a candidate’s profile when all components are completed. A detailed checklist will be available to you through our online application system.

Contact us:

To further guide you in this process, we encourage parents and students to call or email our Lower School admission representative Lindsay Newlon to answer any questions and to arrange your personal visit to our school.


Applications completed by December 8 will be notified of an admission decision by February 1.  Rolling admission begins after February 1 and decisions will be conveyed in a timely manner upon completion of the full application process.

An acceptance of an enrollment offer made by February 1 is due March 1 or two weeks from the date of the offer made, if after March 1.
