Benchmark School practices a rolling admissions procedure and accepts applications throughout the year.
We encourage all prospective families to attend an open house to experience first-hand our school community and academic program. You are also welcome to schedule a private meeting and tour by contacting the Admissions Office.
Submit a completed application packet, including:
- An admission application completed via the Admission Portal (Please note: there is no application fee)
- A WISC V or a psycho-educational evaluation completed within the past two years
- A recent report card
- A teacher recommendation form completed by your child's current teacher
The Admissions Team will review the submitted materials and contact you regarding the steps that follow in our admissions process.
All candidates are required to have a reading screening administered by a Benchmark staff member. It will be scheduled after the application form is completed.
Families will be notified of the admissions decision within two weeks of receipt of the completed application.
