Winsor's Admission team looks diligently at every girl who applies, seeking students with demonstrated intellectual curiosity, academic ability, motivation, and spirit. Winsor welcomes applications for Grades 5 through 7 in our Lower School, and for Grades 9 through 11 in our Upper School. Most students enter Winsor in Grades 5, 6, or 9. Openings in Grades 7, 10, and 11 are more limited.
Winsor is full for the 2021-2022 academic year.

We welcome your application for the 2022-2023 school year.
The admission process begins in September and ends in January for admission during the following school year. Admission decisions are available online in March.
 
As a day school without SEVIS certification, we cannot issue I-20 visas or accept student applications from citizens of other countries.
 
To begin the application process, please follow the steps below:

List of 3 items.

  • Step 1: Apply

    Step 1: Apply

    • Create an online Ravenna account. Please use an email address that you will have access to throughout the admission season, as this will be your primary email contact with Winsor.
    • Add The Winsor School to your application list by searching the Greater Boston region. Once you add the application, you will see all of the necessary steps detailed.
    • Complete the Preliminary Application and submit it with the application fee. If paying the application fee is a hardship for your family, please email admission@winsor.edu to request a waiver code.  
    You can check the status of your application at any time by logging in to your account.
  • Step 2: Virtual Interview and Visit

    Step 2: Visit

    Book your interview, group activity, and on-campus tour through Ravenna after you have submitted the preliminary application with the application fee or waiver.
    • Families with applicants to Grades 5 and 6 should schedule an Adult Family Member Zoom interview in addition to reserving a spot for their student in the in-person Group Activity.
    • Families with applicants to Grade 7 should reserve a spot for their student in the Zoom Group Interview.
    • Families with applicants to Grade 9 should book a Zoom Family interview, where we first speak with the adult family members before speaking one-on-one with your student. 
    • Families with applicants to Grades 10 and 11 should book a Zoom Student interview, where we speak one-on-one with the student.
    Please book only one interview appointment for your family in Ravenna, as we have limited time slots for which to meet with our many candidates.

    Our interview schedule(mid-September through early January) fills very quickly, so we encourage you to schedule your interview as early as possible in the fall. 

    Please note: You will not be able to book an interview appointment until after you submit the Preliminary Application and application fee (or fee waiver).
     
    Open House
    Our Annual Open House, will be held on Wednesday, November 10, 2021. 
  • Step 3: Test

    Step 3: Test

    Register for and take the appropriate standardized test. You must take the appropriate test by the middle of January at the latest.
    Please note: Winsor does not encourage or recommend that your student take the exam more than once. Winsor does not "superscore" and so will view all results.

    *For students taking the SSAT:
    The Character Skills Snapshot
    Character and personal growth are an integral part of an education. Grades and test scores don't tell the whole story of any student. The Character Skills Snapshot gives richer holistic information and illuminates areas where Winsor can help your student grow and thrive.
    Winsor recommends taking The Character Skills Snapshot along with the SSAT. Once a student registers for an SSAT date,the student will have free access to The Snapshot.
