Application Checklist

  1. Application
  2. $75 application fee
  3. Transcript release form
  4. Teacher recommendation forms (English and math)
  5. Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) registration (optional)
    Due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, Altamont has decided to make the application process test optional. Your child is not required to submit a score on the ISEE. However, if you would like your child to take the ISEE, please use this link to learn more about testing options. If you do not want your child to test, please indicate in the additional comments section of the transcript request form that your child’s most recent standardized testing should be included with his or her records. Schools usually do this anyway, but a reminder never hurts!

Once your online application is complete, we will contact you to schedule an interview. At least one parent should participate with the applicant in the interview. The interview is the final stage of the application process before the Admissions Committee meets to make admission decisions.

Questions about how to get transcripts or other information to us because your school is closed due to COVID-19? Contact Thomas Goldsmith at tgoldsmith@altamontschool.org.
