  • Apply

    The application process begins each Fall for the next school year.  We encourage candidates to apply early and prior to our January 15th application deadline.  Application decisions are available in March, with acceptances occasionally offered after that time on a space-available basis. Each application decision is based on the results of an online application, previous school records, an admissions test (K-8th), teacher recommendations, and a parent interview. The process is easy once you have registered.
  • Consider Financial Aid

    The goal of Seven Hills' financial aid program is to attract and retain qualified students for whom a Seven Hills education might normally be out of reach. We hope that families will not let the cost of tuition deter them from applying to our school. Seven Hills uses SSS by NAIS to help assess a family’s ability to pay tuition, and promotes objectivity and consistency in financial aid determinations. Award decisions vary in size dependent on need, based entirely on this process. Please note: the deadline for submitting a tuition assistance application for current families is December 15, 2016 and for new applicant families it is January 15, 2017.
  • Note Important Application Dates

Did You Know?

The student: teacher ratio at Seven Hills is 8:1, with a ratio of 7:1 in our Preschool and Pre-K programs. This gives teachers the opportunity to really know students, their academic strengths and passions. And it allows for greater differentiation to deepen student learning.
"Each and every teacher takes pride in teaching, and each teacher works as hard as they can to give the students a good education. The effort and time put into making lesson plans, creating special activities, and other learning opportunities is phenomenal. The educators at Seven Hills also teach invaluable life skills that we students will inevitably use in our futures. I will forever be grateful to the teachers and administrators who taught me and took care of me along the way.”
— Harry, 8th grader upon graduating
