  • STEP 3: Request a recommendation from your child's teacher

    Lowell School uses Ravenna—a new comprehensive online admission system. Your child’s teacher will be able to submit the recommendation through this system. Please log into to request a recommendation.

    For students not yet enrolled in a school or childcare program, a recommendation may be provided by a nanny, family friend, or activity instructor who knows your child well. Recommendations are kept confidential.
  • STEP 4: Schedule your child's visit

    Prospective students will visit on a weekday morning in a small group for one hour.  Our time with the children is informal, and students should dress to play. Visits will include story time and cooperative play. While the children are visiting, parents will spend time on campus. Tours will be available upon request.

    After your application has been received, the Admissions Office will contact you to schedule your child's visit. Read more about student visits here.
