Application Process

List of 8 items.

  • Submit your Application Form and Fee

    Submit your online application, including the $100 non-refundable application fee, by January 6, 2023. If fees for your application present a hardship for your family, please contact our Director of Financial Aid Amy deBorst.
  • Complete the Parent/Guardian Questionnaire

    At Greenhill, we are guided by our mission: In a diverse and inclusive community, Greenhill prepares and inspires students to lead authentic, purposeful lives. As you think about joining our community, the Admission Committee is interested in learning more about your child, your family, and understanding what brought you to Greenhill.
  • Complete the Student Questionnaire

    This form should be completed by the student in their own words. We look forward to getting to know you better. Please use complete sentences in your answers but know that we do not expect long essay answers to these questions.
  • Complete the Interview and Visit Form

    After you have completed your Application Form, please complete the Interview and Visit Form to indicate your interest in either a student visit and interview or an interview only; and to share with us some of your interests so that we are prepared to welcome you. Interviews are required for all fifth-eleventh grade applicants. Visits are optional. You may elect to sign up for a student shadow visit during which you will also interview or you may choose an interview only. Upcoming available dates will be listed on the form in a drop-down menu for your convenience. We encourage you to schedule your student visit early as we may not be able to accommodate all visit requests later in the admission season.
  • Register for ISEE Testing

    All applicants to fifth-eleventh grade must complete the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) testing by February 4, 2023. The ISEE is a standardized test offered nationally. This year, there are at-home and in-person (at a few schools) options for completing the ISEE assessment. Please note, Greenhill will not be offering the ISEE on our campus this year.

    Students only need to take the ISEE once and the results will be sent to the schools you designate when you register. Please visit the ISEE website here for details, testing options, and a quick fact guide about what to expect on the ISEE. Registering for the ISEE exam should be completed at least three weeks prior to the actual test date. If the testing fee presents a hardship for your family, please reach out to Amy deBorst, Director of Financial Aid. 
  • Request Transcripts/Grades/Progress Reports

    Once you have submitted your Application Form and after December 1, you will have access to the Transcript/Grades/Progress Reports request within your parent portal checklist. The request form will not be accessible before December 1 to ensure that the request is not made to the school too early. We want to have records that include the most up-to-date progress reports prior to our January 27 deadline.

    The request form will ask for the name and email address 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.
  • Request English and Math Teacher Evaluations

    Once you have submitted your Application Form and after December 1, you will have access to the English and Math Teacher Evaluation requests within your parent portal checklist. The request forms will not be accessible before December 1 to ensure that the form is not given to the teacher before they have time to get to know your student.

    You will be asked to enter your child’s teacher’s name and email address on the request form, and they will receive an electronic, confidential Teacher Evaluation Form to complete and submit. The teacher will be able to fill out the form electronically and send it back to us within our system. It is a good idea to let the teachers know ahead of time to expect the request. The deadline for the receipt of the confidential forms by Greenhill School is January 27, 2023.

    Note: if your child has the same teacher for English and Math or if one teacher declines to complete an evaluation form, you should consult with the admission office to determine next steps.
  • Apply for Financial Aid (Optional)

    If you are considering applying for financial aid, please indicate that by completing the Financial Aid Form in the “Optional Steps” section of your application checklist in the parent portal. You must complete the full Financial Aid Application by February 15, 2023. Families of admitted students who apply by the deadline will receive their financial aid grant at the same time as their admission decision, on March 10, 2023.

    While we are able to accept Financial Aid applications after the deadline, we cannot guarantee that funds will remain available. If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact Director of Financial Aid Amy deBorst at 972-628-5522.
