Applying to Holland Hall
What if instead of either/or, you can choose AND/ALL?
Living in Tulsa can be an either/or proposition. Midtown or south Tulsa? New construction or historic remodel? Tulsa Hills or Utica Square? Sooner or Cowboy? But when it comes to finding a great school in greater Tulsa, you don’t have to compromise.
Holland Hall offers a student/teacher ratio of 9:1, an array of exciting electives, a lively, loving community, an apprenticeship in self-reliance, dozens of individual and team sports, AND transformative arts programming. And we encourage your child to choose boldly from ALL we offer — to embrace adventure, take new paths, dare greatly, and engage fully with the exceptional opportunities at Holland Hall.
At every stage of the Holland Hall experience, relationships — between students, teachers, and parents — help our current and prospective students rise to the challenges of our vibrant, vigorous academic environment. We foster an atmosphere of warmth and welcome that begins with the application process.
The application process at Holland Hall varies depending on the student’s current school environment and the Branch each prospective student will be entering – the Primary School: Prekindergarten–3rd Grade, the Middle School: 4th–8th Grade, or the Upper School: 9th–12th Grade.
PreK applicants are required to do a Play Day as part of the application process. Parents can contact Admission Director Justin Butler at (918) 481-1111, ext. 4740 or firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
