A safe, small private school environment with academic challenge. Support from teachers and staff who care about your student’s success. A sense of community, and an understanding of one’s place in the world. You can have that for your student.

It’s easy to get started. When you fill out a request for information, we’ll send a digital packet which will answer many of your top questions.

And, we’ll make sure you get the scoop on upcoming ways to get onto campus, if you’re ready to check it out!

Meeting the faculty, seeing the campus, talking about tuition–these are the easiest and quickest ways to get a sense of the community, and to know whether Menaul School is right for your family and your budget.

Our friendly staff and faculty will always make time for you.

Admission Process Steps

1. Online admission application

Once you create an account, you will be able to log in and complete the application in one sitting, or in multiple sessions. In one sitting, it might take you about 15-20 minutes.

Have math and English teacher email addresses handy, as well as the address and contact information of your current school.

We have made the process as streamlined as possible–so when you fill out the online application, you’ll include everything we need to get the teacher recommendations and grades for your student. Easy!

2. Schedule an interview

The Admission Associate will help you schedule a time with the appropriate division director. The interview is when you get to talk about your student and elaborate on anything you would like us to know about your student. We get to know you and your family, and work together to know whether your student and Menaul School is a great “match”.

3. Schedule an admission test

You will also schedule an admission test by talking with the Admission Associate. The test takes about 2.5 hours total, with breaks included. The Admission Associate will send a detailed schedule once you are ready to discuss the admission test. At this point, tests are administered online and evaluated by a faculty committee.

Keep in mind that the student’s ENTIRE application is considered, before reaching a decision. An admission test is not the sole deciding factor as to whether a student is accepted to the school.

“When will we get a decision?

While working on the admission process, we recommend that you get started on the FACTS Grant and Aid application, if you’re choosing to apply for Individualized Tuition.

Typically, when all the pieces are moving along smoothly, it takes 2-3 weeks to complete an admission application. We make decisions in “waves” throughout the year (dates for 2023-24 coming soon). Summer 2023 we make decisions on a case-by-case basis, since we have rolling admission.

Want Something Better for Your Student?

We understand the importance of finding a right “match” school for your student. Students need stability, encouragement, and individualized attention more than ever.

Imagine your student being prepared for the world. What would that look like? At Menaul, a well-rounded education includes spirituality, and an authentic international learning environment.

Menaul Students graduate with confidence in themselves, and a sense of ease when it comes to working with people from all over the world.

You are not too late! In fact, the last month of school is a fun time to explore the possibilities for your student, and get onto campus.

“We don’t tell students what to believe. They think it’s completely natural to be in a religion class with people from all different beliefs.”

Find Out About the Benefits of a Meaningful Curriculum

At Menaul School, students don’t shy away from the big questions in life. Where do I belong? Who am I? Middle and high school are ideal times to ask these essential questions.

At Menaul School, our students also ask questions such as: Does the universe have a purpose? What part will I play in the world?

Intellectual curiosity and spiritual development are the cornerstones of our overall values.

Find Balance: Well-rounded and Affordable College Prep

As an alternative to crowded, disorganized public schools, or charter schools with a narrow focus, Menaul provides a well-rounded learning experience.

We provide students with the support and the tools to learn, reflect, and grow into ethical leaders who understand who they are and how to make a difference.

At least 90% of our middle school students participate in team sports in a typical year. All sixth-grade students take a music foundations class.

All students have a variety of electives in arts and technology. High school students earn honors when they go above and beyond the credit requirements in a subject.

A small school setting with a diverse range of activities and electives—Menaul School provides a great value for a private college prep school. 60% of Menaul School families use the Individualized Tuition Program.
