Step 1: Inquire
Complete the online inquiry form on the admission page of the Masters website. Once you submit an inquiry, we will send you more information about our school and invite you to upcoming admission events.
Step 2: Learn More About Masters
Attend an Open House or optional weekday group tour. Reservations for these events can be made on the Admission Event Page.
Step 3: Apply
Applications are due prior to scheduling an interview.
Once we have received your inquiry form, we will send you the link to our application and recommendation forms. However, for your convenience, we offer three ways to apply:
1) The Masters application
Step 4: Interview and Optional Tour
After an application has been received, we will contact your family to set up an interview and optional tour. Interviews are scheduled when classes are in session, Monday through Friday.
Step 5: Testing
Submit your standardized test scores. We require either ISEE or SSAT testing. You can submit your scores directly to Masters using the following school codes when registering for your test date: ISEE School Code 331635. SSAT School Code 4948. The Masters School is a registered test site with several test dates throughout the year.
Step 6: Supporting Materials
In addition to official transcripts, we require a recommendation from a school administrator at your current school (a school counselor, secondary school counselor, principal or vice principal, for example), as well as your current math and English teachers. For families filling out our Masters Application, all recommendation and transcript release forms, can be found on your checklist when logged into your family portal. Recommendation forms sent via the applicant will not be accepted.
We also require a graded essay from the current school year. This piece of writing should have been produced for either a history or English class and should include teacher comments and the final grade (if applicable).
