Step 2. Application and Support Materials

Step 2. Application and Support Materials

The application consists of three parts:

  1. Student Application
  2. Parent Application
  3. Student Supplemental Work

The supplemental work is an opportunity to share something that you are passionate about, inspires you, or that we wouldn’t know about you from looking at your transcripts.  The supplemental work should be emailed to the Director of Admissions.

SPECIAL PROMOTION: From May 4-15, 2020 the $50 application fee has been waived!

Additional support materials include current school transcripts with other related documents, and two letters of recommendation. Renaissance School will contact schools for these documents.

Step 3. Interviews

Step 3. Interviews

The student will interview with the Head of School and Director of Admissions during their visit.  This interview is as much a time to ask questions as it is to answer them!

Once application materials are received, Renaissance School will contact the parents to arrange a meeting with the Head of School and the Dean of Academics.  In this meeting, parents can discuss what a Renaissance School education would look like for their child specifically.

Tuition & Tuition Assistance

Tuition & Tuition Assistance

We know that private school tuition can cause sticker shock, especially if applying to a specialized school is an unplanned event. We encourage families to apply anyway! We offer tuition assistance, and we are actively growing our scholarship programs. It's also important to remember that the cost is better viewed as an investment - Renaissance School students are awarded, on average, over $200,000 in college scholarships upon graduation.
