Middle School Admissions
To join our mailing list, register for admissions events, and access the online admissions application, please submit an inquiry and create an account in Ravenna.
Log in to Ravenna to submit your Applicant Information Form and pay the non-refundable application fee.
Help us get to know your student and family by completing the Student Questionnaire and Parent Statement.
Register for an "Applicant Interview and Parent Conversation" through Ravenna.
Your student's entire application does not need to be complete before interviewing.
For applicants to Grades 7 and 8, interviews are by invitation and based on projected space availability for the upcoming school year. Families will be contacted for interviews in January 2023.
Request supporting documents
All applicants are required to submit report cards and previous standardized testing results.
Additionally, recommendations are required from the current math teacher, current English teacher and a current administrator. The applicant family provides the name and email addresses for the teachers and administrator in Ravenna, and the recommendation forms are emailed directly to them and collected online.
Recommendations must be completed after December 1st, so that your child's teachers and administrator have sufficient time to become acquainted with your child and capable of submitting an accurate and insightful recommendation.
Optional Letters of Recommendation
Parker will accept additional recommendations from any individual (e.g., coach, arts instructor, etc.) who has worked with your child and can attest to their interests, abilities, and achievements.
Additional recommendations should be emailed to the Admissions Director for the division to which your child is applying. Unlike the required recommendations found in Ravenna, there is no specific form for the optional recommendations. We simply request that the letter is as detailed as possible.
Register for admissions assessment
Applicants must complete the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE). Students may take the assessment anywhere it is offered, not just Parker. Advance registration is required. During registration, please enter Parker's school code (052843), and the scores will be shared with us electronically when available.
Scores will be considered on time if the student completes the test no later than February 5, 2023.
Fee waivers are available upon request. Please contact Erik Anderson.
Submit a financial assistance application (if applicable)
The deadline for prospective students to complete the financial assistance application is February 1, 2023.
