Two-Day Visit
All applicants will spend two full school days at Waring. The Admissions Office will contact families to arrange the two-day visit after applications have been processed. During the two-day visit, applicants will shadow a current student and attend classes, interview with a student leader, participate in a Humanities discussion, and complete an age appropriate Math test.

  • Music: If you would like for us to hear you perform, please send a YouTube video link (privately/unlisted is fine), or any sound format (mp3 etc.) in an email to Tiffany Baxter, the chair of the Performing Arts Department tbaxter@waringschool.org with the subject title Admissions Music: (Your Name)
  • Art: Please send digital images by email to Kristin Breiseth, the chair of the Art Department kbreiseth@waringschool.org with the subject title Admissions Art: (Your Name)

You are encouraged, but not required, to submit an SSAT score as part of your application. Waring's preferred admission test, should you choose to submit one, is the SSAT. We also encourage you to take the Character Skills Snapshot - please contact the admissions office if you have questions about this questionnaire. 

Admission Committees consisting of faculty members will make the final decisions.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions at any time.
