"Stanley teaches you not only the importance of community, but also how to build character and assume your own specific role in your community." —Stanley Graduate '14
Five Steps to Apply
- Fill Out an Inquiry Form: Help us to get to know you by completing a brief online inquiry form.
- Tour our Campus & Classrooms: Once we receive your inquiry, and beginning in September, the admission team will contact you to schedule a small group tour so that you may best experience the Stanley British Primary program and philosophy. We generally offer tours Mondays through Thursdays, from September to early January, and because tours are a required part of the application process, we encourage both parents and/or guardians to attend.
- Submit Your Application: After learning about Stanley and our admission process on your tour, please complete an online application for the next school year. See below for details on required recommendations and other documents that make your application complete. Or, call 303-261-1792 for a paper application.
- Schedule Your Child's Visit: Required student visits take place in December and January and are scheduled by the admissions team after receiving your completed application. See details (below, right) about what to bring.
- Attend a Parent/Guardian Follow-up Conference: Following your child’s visit, we will contact you to schedule a short (20-minute) conference with a member of our admission team. The purpose of this meeting is for us to get to know your family better and to answer any final questions regarding your child’s application.

Planning Your Visit
We Love Getting to Know Your Student! Required student visits take place in December and January and are scheduled by our admission team after receiving your completed application.

- Grades K-1: Applicants are part of a small group participating in age-appropriate activities and an informal developmental assessment.
- Grades 2-5: Applicants spend part of a morning in a classroom and participate in an informal assessment.
- Grades 6-7: Visits take place from 8:10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. allowing us to get to know your child and, in turn, for him/her to learn more about our school. Grade-appropriate academic skills assessments will be given.
