Upper School Admissions Process

9th through 12th Grade

We look forward to welcoming you to Ranney School and working with you and your family during the Admissions process!  *Admission Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available starting October 1, 2021*

Online Application

The first step in the application process is to start an online application through the myRanney portal. Click here to begin an application and submit the $75 application fee.  Upper School Students also may opt to apply online through the Standard Application Online (SAO) through SSAT if they are applying to multiple schools requiring this application.
Applicant Checklist
Once you begin your application and it has been processed by the Admissions team, you will be able to log in to your myRanney account to access your applicant checklist. This checklist will allow you to keep track of the status of your application and outstanding items, such as teacher recommendations and school transcripts.

School Report and Transcript Form

Applicants must submit a current grade report and two preceding years of academic records.

Applicants for Upper School should submit standardized test scores from the prior year (ERBs, PARC testing, etc.) with their transcripts.

Applicants, may take the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test),  but it is not required for admission or a merit-scholarship.  Applicants may register for the test at www.ssat.org.  The Ranney School SSAT Code is 6002. Due to COVID-19, Ranney School will not serve as a test center for the 2020-2021 school year.
