University Prep offers sibling applicants an early admission process. The early sibling admission process is an effort to alleviate some of the stress on current UPrep families associated with the independent school admission process. We understand the commitment of time and resources required to apply to several schools. While UPrep does not guarantee acceptance to siblings, our program is a good match for the majority of sibling applicants. The early sibling process allows current families time between decision notification from UPrep and the application deadline to other independent schools, should they need to explore other educational options. We extend the courtesy of the early sibling process to children of faculty and staff.
Below are the early sibling admission dates for 2018-2019:
October 4, 2018 - Online preliminary application deadline (opens on September 15)
November 2018 - Campus visits and interviews, optional parent tours
November 8, 2018 - Final application deadline (supplemental forms)
November 10, 2018 - SSAT offered at UPrep (you can register for this date in September)
November 17, 2018 - ISEE offered at UPrep (you can register for this date in September)
December 19, 2018 - Decision notification
February 14, 2019 - Electronic enrollment contract and deposit deadline
In order to participate in the early sibling admission process, simply complete and submit the Preliminary Application with the $85 application fee by October 4, 2018.
Upon receipt of your child’s preliminary application, you can register for either the November 10 SSAT or the November 17 Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE), offered at UPrep.
In addition to the preliminary application, please remember the following items are due in the Enrollment Office by November 8, 2018:
- Student Essay and Parent/Guardian Statement
- Two completed Teacher Evaluation forms (delegated forms will list a general application due date of January 15, so please follow up with teachers to remind them that the sibling deadline is November 8)
- Official transcripts or school records (because of the earlier deadline for siblings, we are aware that we may not receive school records/transcripts from the current school year, so the previous two years of records/transcripts is sufficient)
If you have questions, please contact the Enrollment Office at 206.523.6407 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
