To begin, submit an online application.  Go to  Click on the YELLOW "Admissions and Enrollment" button
Create an account for yourself. Fill out the online form.  
The "Getting to Know You" section should be filled out by applicants independently, without the help of parents.   
We invite applicants to submit additional materials that will help us get to know you better and that is not reflected elsewhere in our application.  This may include artwork, schoolwork, poetry, an essay, a video, information about hobbies/skills/special talent or another format of your choice.  We know that you are much more than an online form!
Report Cards:
Applicants to 9th grade:
Please request that your current school email us report cards from 6th, 7th and first semester of 8th grade.  
If applying to 10th or 11th grades, please email us final report cards for the past 2 years.
Recommendation Forms:
At the end of our online application, supply us with contact information for your principal, Math teacher, English teacher and a Rabbi or Judaic Studies teacher.  If you attend public school, we will want a recommendation from your rabbi.
Parents are asked to give us permission to contact your principal.  We also ask if you will waive your right to view recommendations.
Application Fee:
$150 non-refundable fee
Admission Testing:
We require applicants to take the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam).  We administer the exam at Shalhevet in November (followed by lunch!) and hope you will take it with us.  If you take the exam elsewhere, make sure your scores are sent to us by using our school code 054262 when you register.  Register at Bring your confirmation letter, ID, pens and pencils on your test date.

Applicant Interviews:
