Middle School Application (4th-8th Grade)

The Middle School application process requires the following steps:

  • Complete the online application

  • Complete the Teacher Recommendation Forms (English and Mathematics Teacher Recommendations are required for students applying for 4th-8th Grade. Extracurricular recommendation forms are required for 6th-8th Grade.)

  • Complete the Parent Waiver form

  • Provide grades from the last two years and any current standardized-test scores

  • Provide a copy of the birth certificate and immunization records

  • Complete the grade-level ISEE entrance exam

  • Complete an interview with a faculty member

While completion of the first five steps will complete an applicant’s admission file, they are not required at the beginning of the process. Frequently, the parent/guardian of a student interested in learning more about the Holland Hall program begins the process by calling the Office of Admission to schedule a “shadow visit.” During the visit, the student, who is paired with a host in the grade for which he/she is applying, will attend classes, eat a complimentary lunch, and have an interview with a faculty member.

After the shadow visit, the completion of the entrance exam, and the collection of the materials listed above, the Office of Admission will contact the parent/guardian regarding the admission decision.
