Application Process

How To Apply to Indian Springs School

Admission to Indian Springs School is a rolling process, so we are still accepting applications for the 2020–2021 school year.

A complete admission application includes:

List of 5 items.

  • 1. Application (Completed online)

    Our application includes both a Student Statement (to be completed by the student) and a Parent Statement (to be completed by parents). A $75 USD application fee must be submitted with the application. We also accept the SAO (Standard Application Online).
  • 2. Teacher Recommendations (Completed online)

    In addition to your application, you will need to have two current teacher recommendation forms sent to Indian Springs. Math and English recommendations are required. A third recommendation is optional. These recommendation forms are sent to your teachers via our online admission portal.
  • 3. Standardized Testing

    Because SSAT testing has been suspended, Indian Springs School will use the most recent standardized testing (typically Stanford, Iowa, or ERB) in lieu of the SSAT.

    International students should contact the admission office to discuss testing requirements.
  • 4. Transcript

    For the school to properly review a candidate's application, we must have the latest official transcript from the candidate's current school. We prefer to see the student's mid-year grades. Most schools require parental permission to release an official transcript to Indian Springs.
  • 5. Personal Interview

    Once all application materials are received the admission office will schedule a virtual interview.
