To begin, submit an online application.  CLICK HERE TO APPLY. 

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 or a private independent 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

Applicant Interviews:
