How to Apply

Getting Started

Thank you for your interest in Lowell School!

Our preliminary application deadline has now passed (January 8, 2024), and we have completed our first round of admission.

If you would like to apply for the 2024-2025 school year, please be in touch with our office directly before doing so (spring admissions are rolling, and we may not have openings at all grade levels.) Please also note that we have limited financial aid resources available for spring and summer applicants - if this is relevant to your family, we strongly encourage you to reach out for a conversation before beginning the process.

Like many area independent schools, Lowell School processes applications via Ravenna. If you are interested in learning more about Lowell School for either a spring/summer application or a future application, please submit an inquiry form (via Ravenna) as soon as possible.

If you have questions, please contact admissions@lowellschool.org. We are here to help!
