We encourage parents to tour the campus and see the classrooms in action. Tours and Open Houses are held throughout the year. An application is not required to visit the campus. We recommend that prospective middle school students tour with their parents and that parents of young children visit the school without their children.

Please share information about the candidate by completing the parent
questionnaire(s). In assessing candidates, especially young children,
detailed and concrete information will help the Admission Committee make
informed decisions. Parents of applicants for threes through first grade must complete both questionnaires.
Parent Questionnaire #1: Threes through First Grade
Parent Questionnaire #2: Threes through Seventh Grade
Candidate Questionnaire for Fifth Grade through Seventh Grade
for Grades Five through Seven are required to complete a Candidate
Questionnaire. We ask that the Candidate Questionnaire be handwritten
The Admission Committee requests that the most current transcripts
and teacher recommendations be forwarded from the candidate’s current
school to The Elisabeth Morrow School after November 1.
Only if a parent received a written progress report from their
child's current school or daycare, regardless of the child's age, we ask
a parent to sign a Request for Information/Transcript Request Form and
submit it to the current school. A Request for
Information/Transcript Request form may not be appropriate for very
young applicants (If you do not receive written documentation of your
child's progress from his/her current school throughout the year, please
skip this portion of the application). A Request for
Information/Transcript Request Form allows the applicant's current
school to release any written progress reports or report cards to The
Office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
If an applicant is enrolled an any type of daycare or Early
Childhood Program, a Teacher Recommendation Form must be completed by
the applicant's current teacher as part of the application. This
document usually accompanies official transcripts (when applicable).

Additionally, parents are asked to share information about the candidate in a parent interview.
Admissions Committee decisions are made after a complete review of the applicant's file. Only completed applications will be considered.
