Admission Announcement

Greenhill's campus is currently closed. We will update this page with information about ways to get to know us better virtually in the coming months. To see Greenhill’s plans for reopening in the fall, please see our Roadmap to Reopening site.
In the meantime, our office is working remotely. Please feel free to contact us by email at or by phone at (972) 628-5910. We are available to answer your questions and tell you more about our programs and community.
Our online application and updates about our application process for next year (the fall of 2021) will be available by early September 2020.

Step #1: Application

Submit an Online Application, including the $100 non-refundable application fee by December 6, 2019. If this fee presents a hardship for your family, please contact Amy deBorst.

Step #2: Teacher Evaluation

Once you have submitted your application, and it has been processed, you will have access to an online Teacher Evaluation Request, located on your child’s application checklist. Please enter your child’s teacher’s name and email onto that form, so that he or she will receive an electronic confidential Teacher Evaluation for your child. The teacher must complete the evaluation form and submit it to Greenhill School by January 22, 2020. It is the family's responsibility to see that Greenhill receives these forms before the deadline. If your child is not currently in school, you may indicate this on the application.

Step #3: Admission Testing

Your child must complete admission testing at Greenhill or another local private school.
TESTING AT GREENHILL: Please submit the Admission Testing Form located in your child’s Online Application Checklist (available upon submission of your Admission Application) to schedule this testing visit. This visit includes a nationally standardized test called the ISEE, which measures a student’s strengths in a school environment; the session, which includes testing and a group visit, lasts about two hours. Click here to learn more about ISEE, including helpful guides and videos.
TESTING AT ANOTHER SCHOOL: If you are applying to Episcopal School of Dallas, Good Shepherd Episcopal School, The Hockaday School, The Lamplighter School, Parish Episcopal School, or St. Mark's School of Texas, you may test at any school, as test scores will be shared; please indicate where you are testing on the Admission Testing Form. Testing lists are shared by all participating schools as a test security measure. Applicants must be applying to the school at which they are testing. Parents should consider application due dates when selecting test locations. If your child will not be testing at Greenhill, he or she will have the opportunity to schedule a group visit date on our campus. The visit will last approximately an hour. Please complete the Admission Testing Form located in your child’s Online Application Checklist (available upon submission of your Admission Application) to schedule this visit.

Step #4: Transcript/Grades/Progress Reports

Once you have submitted your application, and it has been processed, you will have access to an online Transcript/Grades/Progress Reports Request, located on your child’s Online Application Checklist. Please enter the name and email of the person at your child’s current school who is responsible for sending transcripts, grades, or progress reports; they will receive an email that contains a link to submit the documents directly to Greenhill. Transcripts may consist of progress reports, test results, and letter or numeric grades. The deadline for receipt of these documents is January 22, 2020.

Step #5: Financial Aid

If you are considering applying for financial aid, please indicate this on the Financial Aid form on the Optional Steps section of your child’s Online Application Checklist. You must complete the formal Financial Aid Application process by February 15, 2020. Families of admitted students who apply by the deadline will receive their financial aid award at the same time as their admission decision, on March 13, 2020. While we are able to accept Financial Aid applications after this deadline, we cannot guarantee that funds will be available. If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact Amy deBorst at (972) 628-5522.

Step #6: Admission Decision

Review your decision letter, which will be emailed after 4:00 pm on March 13, 2020, to those applicants meeting the above deadlines. Decision types: Accepted, Wait Pool, and Non-Acceptance.
ACCEPTED: These applicants are qualified to attend Greenhill and show promise of not only benefiting from, but also contributing to, the school. These students are offered enrollment positions. The school's offer must be accepted or declined by the date specified on the Enrollment Contract. A non-refundable tuition deposit must also be submitted at that time.
WAIT POOL: These applicants are admissible but all available enrollment positions have been filled. Instead of being offered an enrollment position, a wait pool position is offered. Wait pools are NOT prioritized waiting lists; when and if an opening arises in a particular grade, the Director of Admission and the appropriate Division Head will determine which applicant in the wait pool can best fill that enrollment position. The wait pool does not carry over from year to year. Placement in the wait pool one year does not influence admission decisions for any following year in which the student reapplies to Greenhill. The wait pool is disbanded at the start of the school year and the admission process begins again for interested applicants.
NON-ACCEPTANCE: These candidates are not offered enrollment at Greenhill School.
