Application Requirements

We value fostering a strong and inclusive community at The Peak School. Therefore, our application process is detailed and thorough in order to get to know our perspective students and their families to our best ability. The different components include:

Scheduling a tour and a visit: We require all perspective students to come to The Peak School for a shadow day. You have the opportunity to experience our school first hand alongside a member of your potential class.

Online Application: Click the button in the right-hand column to begin your online application.

Essay & Writing Samples: Our online application includes a section where you not only can demonstrate your writing and storytelling capablities, but also tell us more about yourself, your goals, and the reasons you want to join The Peak School community.

Recommendation Letters: Our online application also require two letters of recommendation: one from a family friend and the other from a teacher at your current school.

The Interview: After you come for a visit and submit your application, we invite you and your family on campus for an interview. Interviews are conducted by both our Director of Admission Jessie Hoehn and a panel of current students.

Testing: At The Peak School, we believe in a progressive approach to education, which focuses on your individual needs as a learner and not on test scores. As such, we do not require the SSAT—a standardized test for secondary school applicants. We do, however, ask that your current school send an official transcript to our admission office.

If you are an international student and English is your second language, we do require the TOFEL—an international English language test.

Additional Info: Homeschooled Students

There is an additional form for homeschooled students, which you can find in the online application.

Additional Info: International Students

In addition to school tuition, there is a $1200/month homestay fee for international students. You will also need to send in your TOFEL scores, if English is your second language.
