  • 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.
  • Application Checklist - Steps for Applying

    By January 15th, 2018, each new student applicant should:

    1.  Parent Tour
    2.  Submit an online application.

           - Student Assessment
           - Student Visit
           - Parent Interview
    4.  Upload Teacher Recommendation forms from previous teachers to your digital appliction checklist.  Recommendations must be uploaded directly by the teacher completing the form.
    5.  Upload Report Cards from the past two years all in one upload to your digital application checklist.  Original/official transcripts are not required at this stage of the process.

  • 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, 2017 and for new applicant families it is January 15, 2018.
  • Admission Decisions

    Admission decisions will be communicated to families by The Seven Hills School (and all East Bay Independant Schools) on March 17, 2018.  Tuition Assistance decisions will be communicated at the same time. Though independant schools agree not to host public events during the week after decisions are posted, you are encouraged to reach out to us if you would like to visit one last time or talk with anyone within our community.

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
