Thanks for your interest in applying to the Mountain School. Each February, we accept applications from high school sophomores who wish to join us for one semester of their junior year. (We also consider a few applications from juniors who apply for their senior fall.) Decisions are announced by the middle of March.
The application deadline for Fall '18 and Spring '19 was February 15, 2018. We are fully enrolled for both semesters, and are not accepting applicants to the wait list at this time. We will officially close the wait list at the end of May and all current applicants on the wait list will be notified by email.
Students considering applying for Fall '19 and Spring '20: signup here to let us know you're interested. We will send you a link to the online application when it becomes available in the early fall. The application, along with two teacher recommendations and a transcript, will be due on February 15, 2019.
Dates for Upcoming Semesters
Fall 2018: August 25 - December 15, 2018
Spring 2019: February 2 - June 1, 2019
Visiting the Mountain School
Visits to the Mountain School are possible but should be arranged in advance. We welcome visitors in the fall semester, and welcome accepted students to visit in the spring after decisions have been mailed. If you'd like to visit, please email us.
We are need blind in our admissions process, which means we don't look at whether or not you need financial aid when you apply to the Mountain School. Financial aid applications are processed separately. Information and application can be found here.
Check out our Admissions FAQs. If that doesn't cover it, please feel free to email or call.
