Our Admissions Committee takes a holistic approach to admission. We consider all aspects of an applicant’s file including grades, teacher recommendations, test scores and parent/guardian and student interviews.
Masters is a community built on academic excellence, integrity and social concern. Whether you are a budding mathematician, pre-professional musician or collegiate-bound athlete, Masters asks its students to be active participants across all facets of the School.
Applications are due by December 15, 2018 for Middle and Upper School Day applicants and supporting materials (teacher recommendations, transcripts, testing) are due January 15, 2019. The application deadline is January 15, 2019 for Domestic and International Boarding applicants and supporting materials (teacher recommendations, transcripts, testing) are due February 1, 2019. In order to be considered for our priority deadline, all day student applications must be submitted by November 15, 2018 and by December 15, 2018 for boarding students. The priority deadline allows for greater flexibility with interview scheduling. It does not affect admission decisions.
Grades 5, 6 and 9 are the most common and largest points of entry into Masters. Grades 7, 8, 10 and 11, though not as large in regard to the total number of new students, often receive the same if not more applications per available space. We encourage families to apply when their child is ready, not based on acceptance rates from the previous year.
We do not admit students into the 12th grade, nor do we have a PG program. For a list of schools that do admit students into the 12th grade and/or have postgraduate programs, please use the filter features on privateschoolreview.com and boardingschoolreview.com.
Currently, Masters has students from 14 States, over 30 countries and 90 local zip codes. There are several towns, cities and schools from which we see a large number of applicants every year. Some of these include Greenwich, Scarsdale, New York City, Hartsdale, Larchmont, Bronxville, Piermont, Pelham, Katonah, Chappaqua, Mount Kisco, Dobbs Ferry, Ardsley and Garrison. District busing from local towns, private busing from New York City and Southern Connecticut, as well as numerous towns along Metro-North’s Hudson Line make Masters a convenient commute for many of our families.
