Prospective Families

We're here to help you with this important decision.

Choosing an independent school is one of the most important and life-changing decisions for a student. We also know that for some families it can be a challenging decision. Marshall School's Admissions Department is here to walk you through each step in the process.

Applying to Marshall School involves a few simple steps. From your first phone call to your acceptance packet, each part of the process is designed to begin building the relationship between families, students, and our school.

Four Steps to the Admissions Process

Admissions Application

The Marshall School admissions application is easily accessible online. If you would like to use a computer at Marshall to complete the application, please contact us.

Parent/Guardian Meeting with Director of Enrollment

Parents and guardians know their students best. Visiting with Joe Wicklund, Marshall's Director of Enrollment helps the school get to know your student as quickly and deeply as possible. The meeting also allows parents and guardians to get questions answered about Marshall's academics, extracurriculars, and community.

Please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@marshallschool.org or (218) 727-7266 to schedule a visit with Joe.

Student Campus Visit Day & Student Interview

One of the most important and exciting parts of the admissions process is Campus Visit Day. Visiting students spend the entire day with a Marshall student host, attending classes, meeting teachers and other students, and visiting with the Director of Enrollment.

Marshall School hosts a variety of specific Campus Visit Days throughout the school year, but we are flexible enough to make other dates work.

Not only do visiting students experience a day at Marshall School, but they also interview with the Director of Enrollment and, when scheduling allows, our Middle School and/or Upper School Principal. This interview is a great way to get to learn more about the prospective student and for them to ask questions about Marshall School. The student interview and the campus visit day do not need to be on the same day. Many prospective students interview at the same time as their parents as well.

Please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@marshallschool.org or (218) 727-7266 to schedule a Campus Visit Day and/or a student interview.

Admissions Test

All applicants take a standardized admissions test, which includes three sections: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and reading comprehension. The test takes slightly over two hours to complete. Students with a wide range of scores on the admissions test are accepted to Marshall School.

Marshall School hosts a variety of specific testing dates throughout the year, but we are flexible enough to make other dates work.

Please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@marshallschool.org or (218) 727-7266 to schedule a testing session.

Topper Tunnels

One of our traditions is to send state bound students off to their competition with a "topper tunnel." where all students line the front hallway and cheer for their classmates. Some of the teams and activities honored recently include:

  • Math League
  • Dance
  • Robotics
  • All State Music
  • Tennis
  • CyberPatriots

There might be plenty of paths from Korea to New York City's theater stages, but Paul Yoon may have taken one of the longer routes. The 2016 Marshall graduate started his journey in our Fregeau Auditorium and now finds himself at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

Many people feel this is the best time of the year because of all the holidays, celebrations, and cheer as we wrap up another trip around the sun. More than a few others celebrate lists this time of year. Top moments of 2017, top movies of 2017, top sports plays of 2017 ... all those year-end lists give us chances to compare, contrast, debate and delve into a year's worth of memories. We're lucky at Marshall to have Kim Kosmatka as our photographer. She's talented, she's the best at capturing those "Marshall moments," and she knows our school and students so well! We've asked Ms. Kosmatka to put together her 17 best photos from 2017, and we'll be unveiling one per day leading up to 2018. The first photo, along with a bit of insider info from Ms. Kosmatka, will be on our Facebook page December 15. Be sure to head there each day to see this list unfold. And, since it is the giving season, be sure to give our Marshall School page a "like" and a "follow" if you haven't yet. Let's also spread the cheer to those outside of the Marshall community (and, in turn, give Ms. Kosmatka some much-deserved love) by hitting the "share" button on these fantastic photos images for which we are so thankful!
