PLEASE NOTE: Please contact the Admission Office before applying to 11th grade. We do not accept applications to 12th grade.
Step #2: Teacher Evaluation
Once you have submitted your application, and it has been processed, you will have access to online Teacher Evaluation Requests for both math and English teachers on your child’s Online Application Checklist. Please enter your child’s math and English teachers' names and emails onto those forms, then submit. They will receive electronic confidential Teacher Evaluations for your child, which must be completed and submitted to Greenhill School by January 26, 2021
. It is the family's responsibility to see that Greenhill receives these forms before the deadline. Your child’s teacher may want to wait until closer to the deadline to submit the form in order to get to know your child better.
Step #3: Admission Testing
Complete ISEE testing by February 14, 2021
. ISEE offers At-Home options, testing at Prometric Centers, and testing at some local schools. Click here
to register for the ISEE Test and for more information concerning the ISEE Exam. You must be registered at least three weeks prior to the test date. For more information about what to expect on the ISEE exam, please click here
. We will not be testing on the Greenhill campus this year.
Greenhill participates in a testing consortium with Dallas area independent schools. Students testing for grades 5-11 only have to take the entrance exam once and results will be sent to the schools you designate. ERB charges additional fees for late registration and for telephone registration. For assistance in registering for the ISEE, you may call (800) 446-0320. All ISEE fees are in addition to Greenhill's application fee. If this testing fee presents a hardship for your family, please contact Amy DeBorst
, Director of Financial Aid.
Step #4: Transcript/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 for the last two years 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 26, 2021
Step #5: Candidate Statement
Each student applying to grades 5 to 11 must complete the Candidate Statement page on the Online Application Checklist (which will be available upon submission of the Application) by January 26, 2021

Step #6: Interest Form & Virtual Interview

on the student’s Online Application Checklist (which will be available upon submission of the Application) to choose a date and timeframe for your virtual interview. In addition to allowing you to choose a date for your student’s interview appointment, the form asks questions about the applicant’s interests. Please have your child complete the interest portion of that form so that we may learn more about them
Step #7: 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, 2021

at (972) 628-5522.
Step #8: Admission Decision
Review your decision letter, which will be emailed after 4:00 pm on March 12, 2021
, to those applicants meeting the above deadlines. Decision types: Accepted, Wait Pool, Non-Acceptance.
: 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.
: 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.
: These candidates are not offered enrollment at Greenhill School.
