Application Process

The Application Process

The application process at Holland Hall varies depending on whether the student is currently in school or home schooled and the Branch each prospective student will be entering. Holland Hall is divided into three Branches:
The Primary School: Preschool–3rd Grade
The Middle School: 4th–8th Grade
The Upper School: 9th–12th Grade

Preschool Applicants
Preschool applicants are required to do a Play Day as part of the application process. Parents can contact the Primary School Admission Coordinator Susan Bibens at (918)481-1111, ext. 4767 or to schedule a Play Day or view scheduled Play Days on the Admissions Calendar. Before the date of the Play Day, the necessary forms (immunization records, a copy of the birth certificate, reports from other Preschools, etc.) are collected in order to complete a student’s file.

Kindergarten–12th Grade Applicants
For students entering Kindergarten–12th Grade, the application process frequently starts early. Families often begin inquiring about admission for the upcoming year a month or two after the current school year begins. Shadow visits, interviews (for applicants entering 4th-12th Grade), and the completion of Holland Hall’s entrance exam (see testing dates) are regularly completed between October and January. After information is collected from past schools (transcripts from the last two years, teacher recommendation forms, scores on any standardized tests, etc.), admission files for new students are completed early in the second semester.

The Admission Committees from the three Branches make decisions based on the number of spots available in the grade levels after current Holland Hall students re-enroll in February. Because there is no pre-existing group of students, decisions for Preschool three year-olds occur earlier in the year.
