Admission Process

Applying to Eagle Hill

Step 1
Complete the online inquiry form requesting admission materials.

Step 2
Submit (by e-mail, fax, or mail) a recently administered individual psychoeducational evaluation. The evaluation should include a cognitive assessment (WISC or WAIS) and academic achievement testing (e.g. WJ, WIAT). After reviewing the submitted evaluation, an admission officer will contact you to schedule a mutually agreeable time for a visit/interview.

Step 3
Complete and submit online application and supporting documents. The application must be completed and submitted online and supporting documents either uploaded to the file or mailed directly to the school. Forms are available for download on the website within the online application. Families will be able to monitor the status of their child’s application online as they move through the admission process.  Please be sure to include:

  • Completed application, including photo of the applicant and the non-refundable application fee payable to Eagle Hill School.
  • Official transcript, educational assessments, pertinent school records, Individualized Educational Plans, psycho-educational evaluations, and/or standardized testing.
  • Mathematics and English teacher evaluations, which can be sent through the website directly to teachers. We ask that teachers print and complete the forms, and mail them directly to the Admission Office at Eagle Hill. 
  • Student writing sample. The writing sample prompts are located at the end of the online admission application. There are three choices, and the student should choose one.
