Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Rosslyn Academy.  This information listed below will give you a comprehensive look at what is required for submitting an application for admission.

In recent years, demand for spaces at Rosslyn Academy has exceeded space available.  We do, therefore, strongly suggest that all families interested in applying to Rosslyn get their applications completed and turned in at the earliest possible date.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email or call.  You are also welcome to make an appointment with the Admissions Office to discuss any questions you may have or take a tour of the school.

We’d be delighted to speak with you further and help you with your application process.

Late Admissions

In the event that any spaces remain unfilled after the Regular Admission Cycle, those spaces will be filled by qualified candidates on an ongoing basis throughout June and July until all remaining spaces are filled.

An application will be considered complete only when all necessary documents, including any required testing records, are in the school's possession.  In addition, for most MS and HS applicants, interviews must have been conducted prior to an application being considered "complete".
