Freshman Admissions

Important COVID-19 Update

We know many schools in affected areas have been suspended. Our highest priority and concern is for the health and safety of everyone. We are committed to working with students and educators to ensure applicants will not be penalized for any situations beyond their control.

For applicants currently dealing with difficulties presented by COVID-19 (including school closures, cancelled tests, distance learning, lack of access to school documents or personnel, delayed results on AP/IB/national exams, or other circumstances), we encourage you to contact the Office of Admissions. For one-on-one assistance, schedule a virtual appointment.
