The first place to learn more about Great River before visiting us is our website. This introductory video will provide an overview of the program. Our Head of School Blog can offer insight into the way our philosophy and values shape our culture as a school.

2020-21 Application for Enrollment

If you decide you are interested in Great River School, please complete the 2020-21 Application for Enrollment. You must submit a separate application for each student. If you are currently on the 2019-20 waiting list, you will need to apply again to be included in the 2020-21 lottery and waiting list. This application takes less than five minutes to complete and does not obligate you to accept an enrollment offer. Applying to the waiting list is the best way to keep in touch with us, and have an opportunity to enroll at Great River School. The deadline for lottery applications is February 17, 2020.

Visiting Great River

After researching Great River and completing an application, we recommend that you wait for the lottery to see if your child will receive an enrollment offer or be placed on our wait list. We are a small school with a limited number of openings each year. We find that it is the best use of our resources and your time to wait until families know the chances of receiving an enrollment offer before you invest time and energy attending tours or open houses.
Following the lottery, we will invite families of students who are offered enrollment in Great River School and those at the top of the waitlist to Info Nights and Tours of the school. These families will be able to attend an open house and schedule a tour, and adolescent students may be given the opportunity to shadow in our program for a day.
