The application process at Holland Hall varies for students planning on entering different levels of the school and whether the student is currently in school or home schooled.
Parents of PreSchool applicants frequently contact the Coordinator of Primary School Admission to schedule a Play Day in the winter or spring. Before the date of the Play Day, the necessary forms (i.e. immunization records, a copy of the birth certificate, reports from other PreSchools (if applicable, teacher recommendation form), are collected in order to complete a student’s file.
For students entering Kindergarten through Grade 12, the application process frequently starts earlier. Familiesoften begin inquiring about admission for the upcoming year a month or two after the current school year begins. Shadow visits, interviews (for applicants entering Grades 4-12), and the completion of Holland Hall’s entrance exam (see testing dates) are regularly completed October through January. After information is collected from past schools (i.e. transcripts from the last two years, teacher recommendation forms, scores on any standardized tests), admission files for new students are completed early in the second semester.
The Admission Committees from the three divisions 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.
The School shall provide equal opportunity in education and employment for all persons without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, military service, sexual orientation, or any other status or condition protected by applicable state or federal laws, except where a bona fide occupational qualification applies.
