HOW TO APPLY

Now, more than ever, choosing the right educational partner is rising to the top of the list of what's important to families.

If you are seeking a partner that plays for the long-game in students’ lives and will unleash in your child the kind of human potential they need to take on the complexities of the world, we invite you to apply for the 2022-23 school year.

While our initial application deadline has passed, we are accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year. During this time, applications are considered on a rolling basis where space permits. Please note that all new applications to third grade will be considered for a space in our wait pool.

Admission team members can help you explore space for your child in other grades. To explore how your child can blaze a trail at Flint Hill, schedule a meeting or a campus tour with a member of our team to discuss admission and how we can partner together.
