Application Steps

List of 3 items.

  • Step 1: Complete Online Application

    Recommended Deadline: January 5, 2024
    To apply, visit the online application. Your email will be required to create an account that will allow you to complete the application and track steps in the admission process through the parent portal. Applications are accepted after the deadline, but please contact the admission office before applying for guidance about the late application steps.
  • Step 2: Submit Required Forms

    Recommended Deadline: February 2, 2024
    A teacher recommendation form from the applicant’s current teacher is required. Forms can be requested through the parent portal or by downloading them from the link on this page. We ask that you submit recommendations after December 1, 2023 so the teacher has sufficient experience with your child to give feedback. If your child’s school has a policy that does not allow teachers to complete the form, please request the Optional Recommendation Form from the admission office so that it can be sent to an adult who has worked closely with your child in another capacity (example- coach, mentor, tutor, youth leader, etc.)

    If applying to Grades 1-12, a transcript release form must be completed and submitted to the applicant's current school. The form can be downloaded from the link on this page. 
  • Step 3: Schedule Evaluation

    Recommended Deadline: Mid-February 2024
    Evaluations vary by grade level. An email with instructions will be sent when scheduling becomes available for Kindergarten and Grade 1 testing.

    All Grade 2-4 applicants are required to take the Independent School Entrance Exam. Registration is available on the ISEE website, and scores can be submitted to Ensworth using the code 432520. The ISEE should be completed by mid-February at the latest. Late applicants should contact the admission office regarding this step.
