Prepare to Succeed

In mind, body, and spirit, our mission is to prepare students to succeed.

Menaul School seeks students who desire to be a part of a multi-cultural community where participation, compassion, honesty, and academic achievement are a part of everyday life.

Now accepting applications for the 2018-19 academic year. We look forward to meeting you!

Menaul School has rolling admission. For Domestic Day applicants, decisions for Fall 2018-19 are sent starting March 29, 2018. Early decisions (for siblings and alumni) are sent in January 2018.


Complete the Online Application

Request Teacher Recommendations:
Current Math and English Teacher (if the student has one teacher for both Math and English, only one recommendation is needed). Simply enter each teacher’s email address when you complete the online application. The recommendations will come electronically, directly to the Admission Office. Please notify the Admission Office if you need a paper recommendation form instead.

Some schools prefer to submit the recommendations at one time for all 5th grade students in the early Spring. Please notify the Menaul School Admission Office; we are happy to coordinate with your current school’s staff.
