How to Apply

Middle School

The small class sizes and close relationships with teachers allow my children to be the best students they can be. More importantly, Sanford’s commitment to citizenship and self-awareness is helping my children develop into genuinely good citizens by truly being an extension of our home. Best decision we’ve made!

Rolling Decisions

The Lower, Middle and Upper School Admission Committees review completed applications on a rolling basis. Decisions are communicated to families by a member of the Admission Office once the application for admission is complete (including all materials from the student's current school and admission testing).

Families are asked to reply to an offer of admission by the date specified on the enrollment agreement.

Please let us know if we can help you with your username and password for mySANFORD HUB, where you can access the online application and your admission checklist.  Contact Ceil Baum in the Admission office at 302.235.6503.
The online application automatically saves your information, so you do not have to complete the application in one sitting; you can come back to it later.
