The Donoho School requires that all applicants complete a battery of entrance tests. Students applying for admission to pre‐kindergarten and kindergarten are given an aptitude test as well as an early childhood inventory.

A test of mathematical proficiency may also be administered. The testing/application fee is $100.


While The Donoho School does not require formal interviews as part of the admissions process, a school official will meet with each student for an informal interview during a campus tour or prior to his/her file being presented to the admissions committee.  Campus visits and opportunities to learn more about the program before making the decision to apply are also encouraged.
