Applying to Prep
Prep supports many different types of learners and welcomes students from a wide variety of schools in and around Santa Fe and beyond. All students who thrive at Prep would likely point to a few common denominators: curiosity, hard work, eagerness to engage with others, and an active imagination. We encourage full participation in the life of the school and find that, as with most enterprises, those who give the most also receive the most valuable returns.
How to Apply
To apply to Prep, please complete the On-Line Application. If you are not yet ready to apply, or would like to receive admissions information, please fill out our Inquiry Form. You may access all supplemental Admissions Forms by clicking HERE.
Santa Fe Preparatory School is committed to building an academically strong and diverse student body whose members demonstrate a variety of talents and interests. The Admissions Committee forms an overall impression of each candidate based on character, grades, test scores, teacher recommendations, special talents, and potential for personal and academic growth. Each candidate must be able to handle a demanding college preparatory curriculum and is expected to maintain a positive attitude and an active involvement in the life of the school.
Transcripts and Recommendations
You must give the Transcript Release Form—signed by your parents—to your current Head of School or Principal. Recommendation Forms and envelopes go to your English and math teachers. Be sure to thank each person who is writing on your behalf.
Interview and Campus Tour
Optional Visit Day
All candidates who have completed the admissions process (application, transcripts, English and math teacher recommendations, and personal interview) will be notified by mail about their admission status two weeks after the appropriate deadline.
Math Assessment Test
All candidates will take a math assessment test, designed to identify their strengths and challenges in math. Results of this test may also be used for placement purposes for enrolled students. The testing lasts approximately one hour and results are confidential. Testing will be held on Saturday mornings from 11-12:00, on November 17, December 1, January 12, and February 2. Please call or email Mike or Mary to RSVP for a math testing date.
