Greenhills is built on a strong foundation of relationships.

While our school is currently at capacity for the 2021-2022 school year, we know the journey to the 2022-2023 school year begins very soon. As you learn about us, we'd also love to get to know a little bit about you. We encourage you to check out our virtual tour, explore our Get to Know Greenhills webinar offerings, and fill out an inquiry form to stay in the know about upcoming admission opportunities.

Our holistic admission process considers each prospective student's entire application to get a well-rounded picture of who each student is—both in and out of the classroom. We care about more than just your academics; we also care about your character.

To complete the first step in the admission process, click here. Your application will take 24 business hours to be activated.

All application materials must be received by one of our two deadlines.


The following elements are part of the application review process:

  1. The Greenhills Application (Personal Information Form)

  2. Student essay/short answer responses

  3. Parent statement

  4. Two teacher recommendations; preferably from a Math and English/Language Arts teacher

  5. Past two years of transcripts from school(s) previously or currently attended

  6. An interview with a member of the Enrollment Management team

  7. Optional: Any additional materials you would like to share that might help us get to know your child, which may include testing results, specialized learning plans, or an example of a favorite project. 


Early Application: December 10Applicants who apply by our December 10 deadline receive a decision by the end of January. To guarantee you receive a decision at these times, all application materials must be submitted by the deadlines, including applications for the variable tuition program.

An early decision is often helpful for families with a sibling already attending Greenhills, have a potential family move, or may need to notify another school of their departure before that school’s contract deadline. Families applying for a variable tuition rate are also encouraged to submit their application by the early application deadline.

Regular Application Deadline: January 21Families who apply by the January 21 regular deadline will receive an admission decision in March. 

Rolling Applications After January 21After our January deadline, applications are considered on a rolling basis, and decisions are based on a variety of factors, including space in our classes.

Vaccinated Students Only
Every applicant visits Greenhills for a full day, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. We will pair you with a current student and you will get a chance to shadow classes, see our clubs, and be a member of our community for the day. During your visit you will also meet with a member of the enrollment management team for a casual interview, which is a chance for us to get to know you a bit better, and for you to ask questions.

Virtual Interviews

For Yet-to-be Vaccinated Students
Any prospective students who have not yet been vaccinated will participate in a virtual interview, which takes about 45 to 60 minutes. After a brief introduction, the student will speak to a member of the enrollment management team for 20-30 minutes, after which parents/caregivers are welcome to join for discussion and questions. It is our goal to provide as much opportunity for conversation as a visit to our office would offer. Please note that interviews are only available for 2022-2023 applicants.
