Admissions Process

Our goal through the admissions process is to help you determine if The Orchard School is the best educational fit for your child and your family. The Admissions Team is here to help you through this process. Please see the steps below for application instructions. We look forward to receiving your application!
  1. Application

After this date, applications will be considered through rolling admisson as positions remain available. If you have previously requested information through our website or applied for any child at Orchard, you will select "Already have an account" when you click through. If you do not know your username or password, select "First Time Logging In/Forgot Your Login".

  2. Records and Reports:
    Student records (report cards/ progress reports and academic testing) must be provided. If your child has had any professional evaluations, please include copies of the evaluation results. Records may be delivered, mailed, or scanned and emailed to admissions@orchard.org.

  3. Confidential Teacher Recommendations:

Applicants for fifth through eighth grade must submit two confidential teacher recommendation forms.
