HOW TO APPLY
So many words and deadlines and boxes to check! We know it’s daunting. That’s why we’ve made every effort to present this process as clearly as possible. If at any time you have questions, please feel free to contact us. We’ll help you through it!
Step 1: Application
The process is slightly different for each division, but everyone starts by creating an account in our online application tool, inResonance. Submit Part I of the application and fee (waived if you’re applying for financial aid). We can’t schedule next steps until you complete this one.
Step 2: Interview
We schedule visits beginning in September through January. A personal interview with the candidate and her parents or guardians is required, and takes about 90 minutes, including a campus tour. A representative from the Admission Office will contact you to schedule an appointment once you have completed the online application (Part I).
Step 3: Testing
Testing is required for all applicants. You’ll find complete testing information in Admission Procedures below.
Step 4: Recommendations & Transcripts
The deadline for all recommendations from teachers and/or relevant adults, as well as current school transcripts is January 15. We recommend sharing these forms with the appropriate people after November 15. You’ll find recommendation and transcript release forms in your online application account.
Just as there’s an admission cycle to the school year, there’s also an admission cycle to the school divisions. At certain grade levels, classes grow and admit more students. GA has several expansion years:
At GA, we call grades Groups. Also, here grade numbers are noted in Roman numerals. So what would be grade 8 at most other schools, at GA is Group VIII. And so on.
GA’s division breakdown doesn’t always match up exactly with that of other schools. Please note how we comprise each division:
Lower School = PC & CC, Groups I-IV
Middle School = Groups V-VIII
Upper School = Groups IX-XII
Pre-K & K
At GA, pre-kindergarten is called Pre-Connecting Class and kindergarten is referred to as Connecting Class. Less formally, it’s PC & CC.
Tuition & Affordability
At GA, we match our mission to educate talented girls of exceptional character with a commitment to fostering a socioeconomically diverse community, and we are fortunate to be able to offer financial aid to more than 20% of the student body. The application deadline for financial aid is December 15, 2019.
Greenwich Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, family composition, or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational programs, admission policies, financial aid guidelines, and employment practices or other school-administered programs.
