Ninth grade is a main entry point for new students joining our Upper School. We process applications for limited places in Grades 10 & 11 on a rolling basis. Please note: Applicants for 11th grade should submit complete 9th grade transcripts and 10th grade transcripts, as available, before submitting any online applications. Once you submit your transcripts, we will contact you regarding next steps.
Create a Ravenna profile. You’ll use Ravenna to register for a school tour, complete your online application and to submit all supplemental materials. Required materials include the Student Supplement (which should be submitted at the time of the application, before the interview), Student Activity/Interest Form, English and math teacher evaluations, and transcripts.
Schedule a testing date. Brooklyn Friends accepts the ISEE and the SSAT. Only one of these exams is required for admission. Be sure to list Brooklyn Friends School (#330610 for ISEE, #1880 for SSAT) as a test result recipient.
Wait to hear from us. Once we have received your application, we will invite you to schedule an interview. You will be asked to submit the non-refundable $80 application fee at that time. Please contact us if you haven’t been contacted after two weeks of submitting your application or for information about need-based fee waivers or reductions.
If applicable, apply for Financial Aid. Learn more about financial aid for Brooklyn Friends School here.
