Admission Criteria and Considerations

Rowland Hall seeks highly motivated students of great promise -- students who are creative, compassionate, and eager to collaborate in all pursuits, in and out of the classroom. We are especially interested in young people who are inclined to be of service to others within their communities. The Rowland Hall admission office strives to create a student body that is racially, religiously, and socio-economically diverse; we welcome all families.

Once all application materials have been received and the applicant has been assessed, the applicant's file is reviewed by the admission committee. The committee meets regularly during the winter and spring to consider applications for fall enrollment (and as needed at other times during the year). A letter will advise parents of the committee's decision.

Siblings of current students and children of alumni, teachers, and staff are given special consideration in the admission process but are not guaranteed enrollment.
