Application:

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!

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.

Admission Testing:

We require applicants to take the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam).  We will administer the exam at Shalhevet on Sunday, November 17th (followed by lunch!) and hope you will take it with us.  Register at https://iseeonline.erblearn.org/ with our school code: 054262. If you take the exam elsewhere, make sure your scores are sent to us by December 31, 2019.  You must have an invitation code to register for this test. Please email Natalie Weiss to request our invitation code.   Bring your confirmation letter, ID, pens and pencils on your test date. The deadline to register to take the ISEE Exam at Shalhevet is October 26th, 2019.

*A limited number of fee waivers are available to parents with financial need.  Please contact Natalie.
