How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in pursuing your child’s admission to Lausanne Collegiate School. The first step in our admission process begins with an online application ($75). You may begin your online application by clicking on the link below. We have also included the remaining steps by grade level to review before submitting your application, including admission forms and assessment and student visit details.

The deadline to submit your application for first-round consideration is December 31, after which time we follow a rolling admission process based on space available. We request that students applying for early childhood classes be of grade-level age by June 1 for admission consideration. All students entering PK3-Age 3, JK-Age 4, SK-Age 5 must be toilet-trained by the first day of school. Toilet-training is not required of PK2-Age 2 applicants.

Lausanne Collegiate School admits qualified students of any race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression and national ethnic origin. 

Financial assistance applications for first-round admission consideration are also due by December 31 and will only be considered with a completed admission application. You will find the financial aid application at lausanneschool.com/tuition-financial-aid. Financial assistance will be allotted to qualifying applicants in Grades 1 - 11, as monies remain available.

Early Childhood & Lower School: Visits and Assessments
A classroom visit is a general requirement of the admission process. Due to Lausanne’s Covid-19 policies and procedures, we cannot offer classroom visits at this time, but we can still accommodate individual assessments in the admission office by registration. We are happy to give our applicants a tour of Early Childhood and Lower School classrooms on the day of their assessment. Online tours and visits can be arranged for out-of-town applicants.

PK2 (Age 2 by June 1): Each applicant and family will have the opportunity to participate in an individual family visit. Families will meet with a Lower School administrator and Admission counselor. The visit should last 20-30 minutes.

PK3 (Age 3 by June 1): KSEALS Assessment ($30). Each applicant will visit campus for a brief assessment with one of our admission counselors. The visit should last 20-30 minutes.

Middle & Upper School: Visits and Assessments
While student visits for 5th – 11th-grade applicants are a highly recommended part of the admission process, we are limiting student visits at this time to tours and 9th-11th grade applicants due to Lausanne’s Covid-19 policies and procedures. To replace this on-campus experience, we encourage all students applying for the Middle or Upper School to join in on a family tour during the admission season. You may find more information on available dates by visiting www.lausanneschool.com/virtualadmission. When campus visit restrictions are lifted, we will add student visit day opportunities to our admission process for grades 5-8th.

5th–11th Grade: Applicants entering the 5th–11th grades must take the Independent School Entrance Exam.
