Areté seeks candidates with strong academic and extracurricular interests and the desire to be part of a vibrant, stimulating intellectual community. We enroll students who will value our challenging, idea-centered coursework and take advantage of our individualized support system.
Admissions decisions are based on a written application, teacher recommendation, and personal interviews with prospective students and their parents. A day-long “shadow day” provides an opportunity for the student and the school to evaluate one another through informal, authentic interaction.
Applicants are accepted year round on a space available basis. We provide a limited number of scholarships based on demonstrated financial need.
