Steps to Apply

  • Applications for the 2021-22 school year were due January 15. If you have questions please reach out to admission@stanleybps.org.


    1. Fill Out an Inquiry Form: Please complete a brief online inquiry form.

    2. Tour our Campus: Given our priority to keep students, faculty and staff safe during Covid-19, you can see our campus in person or virtually to learn about our program and philosophy. Tours will not enter the buildings this year but you will have an opportunity to speak with an admission officer and see a small glimpse of our campus. We offer in-person tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning and afternoon, from September to early January. You can also watch our virtual tour online for this season. In-person tours or virtual tours are a required part of the admission process.

    3. Attend a Zoom admission Q&A: We require applicant families during the 2020-21 admission season to attend an online question-and-answer session. You can reserve your time for the Zoom call following your tour in your SchoolAdmin account or by calling 303-261-1792.

    4. Submit Your Application: Please complete an online application for the next school year, or call 303-261-1792 for a paper application. See below for details about recommendations and other required documents.

    5. Schedule Your Child's Visit: After you have submitted your application, you can schedule your child's required student visit. These visits are conducted individually for this school year due to Covid-19.

    6. Submit an Optional Admission Video (applicants for K, 1 and 2 only): Due to the changes to our process due to Covid-19, we invite you to submit an optional admission video. (Please see video format requirements here.)

    7. Attend a Parent/Guardian Follow-up Conference: Following your child’s visit, you will have access through the parent portal to schedule a short (20-minute) required 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. These will be conducted through Zoom this year.
