How To Apply

Co-Applying Siblings

We welcome families to apply more than one child to Shady Hill—it’s a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know your family and we have a large number of families with multiple children attending Shady Hill. It helps create a vibrant and close-knit community! 

We hope the following steps will help you navigate the admission process for multiple children. 

  1. Scheduling your Parent Visit:
Please call the Admission Office to schedule your Parent Visit. We will arrange a visit to best suit your needs. 

  1. The Application Process
We build separate application files for each child who applies because each child is unique! This means that you need to complete a separate application for each child applying to Shady Hill. 

As you complete the online applications, you may find it helpful to use the same/similar answers for certain questions regarding family activities; however, we do ask that all other answers be specific to each child so that we can get to know them individually. 

You will also need to submit the appropriate supplementary documents in accordance with the requirements for each child's application. Examples of supplementary documents include: school reports, recommendations, test results and student questionnaires (if applicable). 

You can find each application process listed out, step-by-step, on our How to Apply page. If you have any questions about applying more than one child at the same time to Shady Hill, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! 

  1. Deadlines
The application deadlines vary depending on the grades to which your children are applying. Our application deadlines by grade are:

- Family application: Beginner and Kindergarten: December 15, 2019; Grades 1 and higher: January 4, 2020

- Supplementary documents (recommendations, evaluations, school reports, testing): All grades, January 15, 2020. 


Please contact the Admission Office by email or by phone (617) 520-5200 with any questions. We look forward to working with you and hope to make the process as seamless as possible for you and your family!
