Now Accepting Applications for 2020-21

We are now accepting new enrollment applications for the 2020-2021 school year with a first round application deadline of January 3, 2020. Experiencing our teachers interacting in the classroom and on campus is the best way to understand our school. We strongly encourage prospective parents to visit our school on one of our preschool or elementary tours. Book your tour here or sign up to attend our Elementary Open House on November 14, 2019.

One of the things our families love about our school is that it's small with just 160 preschool and 264 elementary students. It can present a challenge for newcomers though, with limited openings for new students. If you decide The Raleigh School might be a good fit for your child, our best advice to you is apply early! Be sure to submit your child's completed application along with all supporting documentation before January 3, 2020 as most new children are placed from our first round of applicants. Find out more about our admissions process.
