Middle School Admissions

 

For information about which grade levels still have openings, please contact Ms. Kate Witherington, Director of Enrollment Management, at kwitherington@alvernoheights.org or complete an Inquiry HERE.

Our main admission entry point is TK and we expect approximately 20 openings.  Applications for kindergarten – 8th grade are fully considered, but admission is based on space availability due to student attrition. The 2022-2023 Middle School Application is now available. Please click here to begin the process. 

STEP 1: COMPLETE THE APPLICATION BY FEBRUARY 1, 2022

To start the online application process, create a SchoolAdmin account and begin the application. Click Here to begin your application process. You will have the flexibility to log in and out of your account to access and complete your application and checklist.  All application materials must be submitted online by February 1, 2022 with a non-refundable $95 APPLICATION FEE.  We require a separate application and fee per child.  Applications will be accepted after this deadline on a space-available basis. 

The Alverno Application is broken up into the following sections: Application Form, Application Fee, Optional Recommendation Letter, Transcripts/Report Cards (applicable to incoming 2nd – 8th grade students), Student Photo, and an Interview/Assessment.

STEP 2: OPTIONAL RECOMMENDATION LETTER

Recommendation letters may be submitted from a student’s teacher, pastor, academic coach, or other mentor.

STEP 3: UPLOAD TRANSCRIPTS OR REPORT CARDS

Alverno asks for school reports from the previous academic year and first semester/trimester of the application year.  We will accept either transcripts (they can be unofficial) or report cards for review.  Please upload legible copies in your SchoolAdmin portal.  

STEP 4: INTERVIEW WITH A MEMBER OF ALVERNO’S ADMISSIONS TEAM

You will be instructed to schedule your 30 minute parent/student interview/assessment with the Admissions Team.

STEP 5: UPLOAD A STUDENT PHOTO

This is only used for internal purposes to help our Admissions Team put a face to your child’s name.  

NOTIFICATION DAY: FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 2022

Admissions notifications (all grades) are released on Friday, March 4, 2022 in conjunction with all Pasadena Area Independent Schools.
