ADMISSIONS APPLICATION PROCESS

How many openings do you have in each grade level?

We typically have 46 openings in kindergarten, about 65-70 openings in 7th grade, and 20-30 openings in 9th grade each year. Openings at other grade levels are based upon attrition.

Please refer to our financial aid web page for further details on our financial aid program.

What is your sibling and legacy admissions policy?

Campbell Hall is well known for its strong sense of community. We realize that keeping families together and admitting children of alumni are exactly the kinds of connections that help build that community. We also recognize that every child is different and Campbell Hall may not be the right fit for every child. Therefore, priority consideration is extended to sibling and legacy applicants applying to our entry level grades, K, 7 & 9, providing that:

  1. The applicant’s record is equal to that of the other applicants we are accepting to the grade, or nearly so.
  2. The family has been supportive of the mission, policies, administration, faculty, and fundraising efforts of the school.

Do you have to be Episcopalian to attend Campbell Hall?

No. Campbell Hall thrives as a diverse, interfaith community that actively seeks to learn from the many religious traditions represented by our faculty, students and families.

Do you have to apply to Campbell Hall in order to attend an open house or tour?

No. Our school tours and Open Houses are open to all prospective families.

Do you offer shadow days?

There are many opportunities for families to see the school without having students miss another school day. These opportunities include Saturday Open Houses, an individual campus tour during each interview visit, evening information sessions, and athletic and performing arts events.We do not encourage families to take their student out of school on an additional school day, however a limited number of shadow days are available for students applying to grades 7 & 9, who feel that an extra visit would be beneficial. Shadow days are offered November 1st through February 1st, and are only available for students after they have interviewed.

How important are ISEE scores in admissions decisions? What is the deadline for ISEE testing? Do you accept other test scores besides ISEE?

The ISEE test score is just one factor that is considered in the application process. The test score is important in serving as a common denominator as we are looking at applicants from many different feeder schools and backgrounds. Applicants must submit the ISEE scores by January 9, 2017. If your student opts to take the ISEEs more than once, Campbell Hall requires you submit all ISEE scores by January 9, 2017. We also accept the SSAT, PSAT, SAT and TOEFL (for international students). .

What qualities does the admissions committee look for in applicants?

The admissions committee is looking for students who will be academically successful and contribute to the activities offered at Campbell Hall and families who will enthusiastically support the mission, philosophy, and policies of the school and actively engage in the school community. For each class, we seek to balance (among other things) diversity, gender, and interests.
