Three Easy Steps.
For students applying to our boarding program for either our Washington, D.C. or Shenzhen campus, our application process is the same — simply follow the same three steps below.
Step One: Submit the Application Form and Pay the Application Fee
In order to get to know you better, we hope that you will submit your application form as earlier in the process as possible. If you are applying to our peer boarding schools, you will be pleased to know that we accept applications through both Gateway to Prep Schools and the SSAT’s Standard Application Online (SAO).
Step Two: Submit Required Materials & Testing
Following the instructions on either Gateway to Prep Schools or SAO, students must also submit the following materials:
Official Academic Transcript
English Teacher Recommendation
Math Teacher Recommendation
Please note the following standardized testing required for boarding students:
For all students, we require either the SSAT or the ISEE.
For students for whom English is not a native language, we require the following:
Grade 8: TOEFL Junior, TOEFL iBT, or IELTS
Grade 9-10: TOEFL iBT or IELTS
Step Three: Schedule a Student & Parent Conversation
An important part of our process is getting to know our applicants better and having a collaborative conversation about the student’s interests, passions, and goals — and how Whittle might support them. These conversations may take place in-person or conducted remotely. Once you submit your application and required materials, our team will be in touch with you to schedule.
The application deadline for Regular Decision is February 15, 2019.
Admission decisions will be announced on March 1, 2019.
