HOW TO APPLY

Is The Rashi School
The Right Place For You?

Rashi’s admissions process is simple and straightforward, and our priority is ensuring that your child can succeed and thrive at Rashi. For children applying to Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade 1, we conduct in-person screenings in groups as well as one-on-one. Students applying to Grades 2-8 will be invited to Rashi for a visit day, during which our education team will assess your child’s numeracy, literacy, and social-emotional skills. Standardized testing is not required. Rashi reviews all students’ applications holistically, consistently, and equitably.

If you plan to apply for financial aid, you must do so when you apply for admission, as we render the admission and aid decisions together. Applying for financial aid after the January 31 deadline means there may not be aid available for your child, even if you are eligible.

Here are the steps to apply your child to Rashi.

1. Submit an inquiry: Click here to submit an inquiry. This lets the Admissions Office know that you want to learn more, provides you with a personal login to your admissions portal, subscribes you to our email list, helps you schedule a visit, and offers information about upcoming events. We’ll follow up by phone or email.

Families are encouraged to apply by January 31 in order to be included in the regular admissions cycle, however we welcome applications throughout the year on a space-available basis.

4. Submit the following supporting materials (most can be done online).

a. The AISNE (Association of Independent Schools in New England) student evaluation form(s), to be completed by your child’s teacher. At any point, through the Admissions Portal you can email the AISNE form(s) to the teacher(s). These forms need to be submitted directly to the Rashi Admissions department by the teacher.

b. Authorization for Release of Transcript form, to be submitted to your child’s current school. This grants permission for them to forward your child’s most recent academic records to Rashi.

5. If you intend to apply for financial aid, applications must be received by January 31. The Rashi School provides financial aid to approximately 40% of students* based on demonstrated need, totaling more than $2 million annually. Learn about our financial aid process here.

*Students applying to Pre-K at Rashi are not eligible for financial aid.

6. Schedule your child’s visit/assessment. Schedule your child’s visit/assessment. Academic and social/emotional assessments are conducted by a Rashi educator once the AISNE teacher form(s) has been received. Please be in touch with Admissions Associate Rachel Savage at rsavage@rashi.org to schedule this step, or for PK – Grade 1 you can self-schedule through the Admissions Portal.

7. Rashi sends admissions decisions to families on March 10. Please check your Admissions Portal that day to retrieve your child’s decision letter and information about enrollment.
