How to Apply

Mason Prep welcomes applications from talented, motivated students. We look forward to the opportunity to meet your family and for you to meet ours through the application process.

  1. Get in Touch - To begin the process, simply contact our Admissions office by phone or email (see below) or by submitting an online inquiry. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and send you our information.

  2. Visit - The best way to determine if Mason Prep is the right school for a student and his or her family is to visit. We offer several ways to come and get better acquainted with our school.
    - Open House: Open Houses offer a great first look at Mason Prep. We hold 3 Open Houses during October and November.
    - One-on-One Tour: Visits include personalized campus tours, classroom observation, and meeting potential teachers. 
    - Shadow Days: For grades 2-8, our shadow days let prospective students experience a day at Mason Prep. Our last Shadow Day is January 14. You may register here.

  3. Apply – Fill out an application. Application packets include an application form, academic transcript, and teacher/school recommendations. You may download the application form here. Once we have received your application, the Admissions Office will contact you and walk you through how to gather and submit the additional items.

  4. Test - Applicants for grades 1-8 must take an entrance test, and we host classroom observations for our kindergarten applicants. The group testing dates for 2020-2021 applicants are below, and we are happy to observe and test prospective students individually (see below for contact information). You can also read our Q&A about why we have testing and observations, and what is involved with each.
