Candidates must complete a St. Anne's Admission Application and check the Scholarship box to declare their wish to be considered for the scholarship. Applications must be received by February 28, 2019.

3. Student Visit Day

Scholarship applicants must spend a full school day at St. Anne's to attend classes, meet students and teachers, and take admissions assessments. Our Assistant Head of School, Jill Reilly, interviews all rising 5th-8th grade students.

4. Admissions Exam

These Saturdays are planned for the ERB online Admissions Exam for all applicants entering grades 5-8:  December 15, 2018, January 12 and February 9, 2019 (time to be announced). This step is required for all scholarship applicants.

The school is committed to providing financial support to families who cannot meet the entire tuition obligation. All candidates may apply separately to our Tuition Assistance program which requires a FAST online application each year. We encourage you to review this process prior to May if your student will require aid to enroll.
