Admissions | The Open School


Think The Open School might be the right school for your family? The first step is to contact us using the form below. Then we’ll get in touch with you to schedule an informational phone call and a campus visit.

Step 1: Get in touch


Step 2: Application

After you have visited the school, fill out our online application (one per family). Then, you will receive an emailed invoice to pay the application fee. Once that fee is paid, we will contact you to set up a family interview and visiting week.

Step 3: Attend interview

Upon receipt of your application, you will be contacted to arrange a family interview. The student(s) and legal guardians must be present.

Step 4: Financial aid application (optional)

Parents applying for financial aid or a payment plan will submit the appropriate forms to F.A.C.T.S. The application form is available online only. Click here to begin the financial aid process.

Step 5: Visiting week

Prospective students for the current school year are required to attend a week at The Open School before registration, and those enrolling for the following year are strongly recommended to do the same. This gives the school a chance to see how well the prospective student handles the freedom and responsibility of the school, and gives the family a deeper understanding of how we function. Visiting week costs $230/student. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

Step 6: Registration

At the end of that visiting week, parents will receive a registration packet. This packet must be completed in full, along with the first tuition payment before students are able to begin attending The Open School.
