Common Notification and Reply Dates
As independent schools, we are varied in our educational philosophies and programs but united in our commitment to ethical practices in our admission offices. The Heads of the undersigned Los Angeles schools have agreed to the following principles of good practice for K – 12 admissions:
In order to minimize timing dilemmas for applicant families, we have agreed to these common notification and reply dates for fall 2020 admission.
K-8: Notification letters will be sent on Friday, March 13, 2020
Email notifications can be sent at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020
Replies will be due on Monday, March 23, 2020
- Once notification letters have been sent, schools will not initiate visits, whether for individuals or groups (e.g., through open houses).
- We are mindful of the disruption to students’ education in their current schools that additional visits to prospective schools can cause, so we do not encourage such visits. However, schools that receive requests for newly admitted students and/or parents may grant those requests at their discretion.
- No applicant or applicant family will be contacted by any representative of the school once admissions notification letters have been sent. Of course, admitted students and their parents are welcome to contact schools to have questions answered.
We share an interest in making the independent school application experience as informative and enjoyable as possible. And we are joined in our conviction that the independent school world can offer unique and rich educational opportunities for young people.
