Thank you for considering Chadwick for your child’s future.

The deadline has passed to submit an application for the 2021-22 school year. Under unusual circumstances, we may accept a late application. If you believe this might apply to you, please contact us at Thank you!

Chadwick School’s application period begins one year in advance of a child’s anticipated entry. For your convenience, your application can be filled out online and all supplemental documents are listed below. 

Our main admission entry points are kindergarten, sixth, seventh and ninth grades. We accept applications to all grades, but for those that are not main entry points, space is dependent on attrition.

We look forward to meeting your family. Thank you for your interest in Chadwick School!
