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:
Graded Writing Sample
Parent & Student Meeting
Math & English Teacher Recommendations (please consult with an admission representative if you need to provide alternative subjects/teachers recommendation letters)
Consent for Records Release
SSAT or ISEE Test Results
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.
To further guide you in this process, we encourage parents and students to call or email our Upper School admission representative Mary Kay Napoli to answer any questions and to arrange your personal visit to our school.
