Admissions Application Process
Applying to Marshall School involves a few simple steps. Each component of the admissions process is designed to assess the fit between school and student. The student essay, academic work, campus visit, personal interviews as well as the admissions test all provide important information for the family and Marshall School in helping to determine the enrollment decision.
A willingness to prioritize academics, the desire to be a person of character, and a desire to be a part of the Marshall School community are essential qualities for a positive admission decision. The Admissions office does not select students solely on the basis of academic strength. We believe that one’s willingness to work hard and a love for learning are the academic qualities necessary for success at Marshall School and beyond.
