CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT AN ONLINE APPLICATION
Step #1: Application
Submit an ONLINE APPLICATION, including the Family Statement, a Parent/Guardian Meeting Registration Form, Admission Test Registration Form and $100 non-refundable application fee by December 8, 2017. Please note: Prekindergarten applicants must be four (4) years old by September 1st of the year they would attend, with birthdates that fall between September 1, 2013 and August 31, 2014. Kindergarten applicants must be five (5) years old by September 1st of the year they would attend, with birthdates that fall between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013.
 
Step #2: Teacher Evaluation
Provide Greenhill School with your child's current teacher's name and work email address in the online application. Greenhill School will use this information to send an online Confidential Teacher Evaluation form to your child's current teacher. The Teacher Evaluation form must be completed and submitted to Greenhill School by January 19, 2018. The Teacher Evaluation must be sent directly to Greenhill from the applicant’s current teacher. The Admission Office will not accept forms sent by parents. 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: CATS TESTING
Register your child for CATS (Collaborative Academic Testing Services) testing. You may register your child online at www.catstexas.com. CATS testing lasts about an hour and is administered to each child individually. The test costs $285 and is not included in the application fee. Parents will receive a summary of test results. Spots are limited, so schedule your testing as soon as possible. CATS testing must be completed by February 3, 2018. To be considered for a reduced test fee, please contact CATS directly.
 
Step #4: Progress Reports
Submit the Transcript/Progress Report Release Form to the applicant's current school. The Official Transcript or Progress Report must be sent directly to Greenhill from the applicant’s current school. The Admission Office will not accept forms sent by parents. It is the family's responsibility to see that Greenhill receives these forms before the January 19, 2018 deadline. Transcripts may consist of progress reports, test results and letter or numeric grades.
 
Step #5: Parent/Guardian Meeting
Attend a parent/guardian meeting, if applicable. The Admission office will schedule the meeting upon receipt of application forms. Parent/Guardian Meetings are for new applicant families only. They allow the Admission Committee to gain a better understanding of both the family and the applicant. These meetings are conducted by an admission officer, last approximately 20 minutes, and involve only the parent(s) or guardian(s). We will not conduct parent meetings for current families or for reapplicants from the previous year.
 
Step #6: Financial Aid
If applying for financial aid, complete the Financial Aid Application by February 15, 2018. Financial aid decisions will be sent with admission decisions on March 9, 2018. While we are able to accept Financial Aid applications after this deadline, we cannot guarantee that funds will be available. Families of admitted students who apply by the deadline will receive their financial aid award at the same time as their admission decision. If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact Amy deBorst at (972) 628-5522.
 
Step #7: Admission Decision
Review your decision letter, which will be emailed after 4:00 p.m. on March 9, 2018, to those applicants meeting the above deadlines. Decision types: Accepted, Waitpool 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.
