Admissions

It is the policy of the School Committee to admit students to the school who are qualified to meet specific standards, as the enrollment permits. A broad representative student body is desired. Selection of students is not based on sex, race, religion or national origin. Every attempt is made during the admissions procedure to arrive at an understanding between parents and the school of the school's purpose and goals as a Friends institution. A comparable feeling of mutual trust with parents is essential to the school helping each child. Standardized tests administered by a trained psychologist may be required as part of the admission procedure. Personal interviews with one or both parents and the child will be scheduled before the child is accepted. Transcript reviews, school visitations and teacher recommendations may be required for admission consideration.

A deposit of $500 is due upon notification of acceptance by the school. This payment is credited to the tuition account and will not be refunded.
A contract of enrollment is required for admission.

The cost for a full year of tuition (2012-2013) is $11,000

The school reserves the right to request the withdrawal of a student if it should become necessary. Students who do not meet the behavioral or academic requirements of the school community will be asked to separate from the community.

All pupils are entered for the entire school year, unless special arrangements are made in advance with the headmaster. Withdrawal at any time during the school year does not release the parents or guardian from responsibility for the full year's charge.
