Admission FAQs

Decision Process

Applicants whose files are completed by our January 2017 deadline receive notification of the Admission Committee's decision by early March. Applicants whose files are not complete by then will be considered on a space-available basis.

Can we come and visit the school without an application?

YES! Every fall we host an Open House that all are invited to attend. You may explore the campus and talk with teachers, current students and parents. No registration is necessary.

We also offer weekly general tours that do not require an application, just an appointment and the submission of an inquiry form. Upper School tours are on Mondays at 9:00 a.m. and Lower and Middle School tours are scheduled throughout the month at 9:00 a.m. Call our office at 301-983-5724 for available dates and to make an appointment.

Can my student come and spend the day as a shadow student?

Sorry, but unfortunately our process does not allow for that. We require that all applicants have had an interview or have scheduled an interview before they shadow. The shadow visit is not an official part of our process and is not a part of the Lower School application process until after acceptances have been mailed.

Do you offer late afternoon or weekend interviews?

Our interview times follow our daily school schedule and are scheduled in available slots on weekdays between 9:00 a.m.and 2:00 p.m. For international Skype interview times, please speak to the Admission Office.

Does my testing have to be completed before the application deadline?

Our application deadline is January 6, 2017. This is also the deadline for ALL supporting documents. However, if for some reason you are unable to complete your testing before this date, the latest national testing dates we recommend for you to have your student's file read in a timely manner would be the SSAT on January 7, 2017 or the January ISEE. All testing registration must be done with the chosen testing company.

What is the financial aid deadline?

The financial aid deadline is February 1, 2017. The online documents can be found here: and Bullis' school code is 1960.
