APPLY FOR THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

At The Benjamin School, we limit the size of our classes and grade levels in order to maintain a small school environment where each student is known on a personal level. Due to an exceptional interest in our school for the 2021-2022 school year, many grade levels have reached their capacity. Qualified applicants who have completed the admission process will be placed in a wait pool in grades that are currently full.

Campus tours are currently available for:

   - Families who have enrolled for the 2021-22 school year;
   - Families who are interested in grade levels with available space for the 2021-22 school year.

As of June 1, 2021 we are still accepting admission applications for the following grades:

   - Pre-Kindergarten
   - Kindergarten
   - Grade 6

Please know that our admission team is working to move applicants through the admission process quickly with the goal of offering thoughtful and timely decisions regarding our applicants.

Campus tours are not currently available for families interested in the 2022-23 school year. These families are encouraged to call the Admission Office after July 15 or submit an inquiry online so that we may schedule a future tour.
