Below are some essential steps when applying to Branksome Hall.

Plan a visit
We welcome you to come and visit Branksome Hall!
We hold Open Houses each fall and offer private tours. Our Admissions staff will respond to all e-mails within 48 hours. We also travel internationally each year to meet families of potential boarding students.

Steps to Apply:

Complete your online application form
Once your application is processed, you will be sent a link to book your interview and pay the $210 application fee by credit card
Once your application is processed, you will be instructed to upload required application documents (report cards, birth certificate, passport, etc.)

Once your application is submitted, you will have the opportunity to book your interview and pay the application fee through our online booking system. Students and parents attend interview appointments together and are offered a student-led tour before the interview. Interviews are informal and are meant to help both the school and the applicant get to know each other better. International students unable to visit the school in person are also able to schedule an online interview through our online booking system.

Student Assessment
Students from JK - Grade 6 are tested holistically using the most current developmental tools. Local students applying for Grade 7 and 8 are asked to prepare and present during the interview a portfolio of graded school work and personal accomplishments. International students applying to Grade 7 and 8 must write the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test). All students applying to Grade 9 to 11 must write the SSAT.

Admissions Decisions
Applications are due the first Friday of December and day school admissions decisions will be communicated on the last Friday of February. Boarding residence applications are accepted on a rolling basis and admissions decisions are communicated upon the completion of the full process, typically, January to March.
