Admission Process

The purpose of the admission process is to find a mutually good fit between families and the school. Sayre seeks to enroll mission-appropriate students whose families will be supportive members of the school community. The following steps help determine a good fit for admission.

Inquire and Apply

Contact the Admission Office to schedule a campus tour, or submit the Online Inquiry Form. The Online Application or   Application for Preschool Application for Grades K-12 can be submitted when you inquire, or after you visit the campus. There is a $75 application fee. Admission folders with a hard copy of the application can be mailed upon request.


Schedule a campus visit to see the facilities, visit classrooms, and meet the appropriate teachers or coaches who fit your child’s interests. Mr. Oldham is available year-round to meet with families. If you do not apply before touring, submit the application after the tour.

Student Visit & Assessment

After submitting the application, schedule a classroom visit so your child can attend classes, meet teachers and students, and complete an academic assessment. Student visits range from 20-30 minutes for Preschool applicants, to half-day or full-day visits for older students. Assessments take place during the visit, and are age and grade-level appropriate to gauge the student’s academic and developmental readiness to be successful at Sayre.

Records & Recommendations

Upon receiving the application, Sayre will request records and teacher recommendations from the current school. It may take some time to receive the information back from the other school, so often it helps if parents can provide copies of report cards, progress reports, and standardized testing to keep the process moving forward while we wait for the records request to be fulfilled.

Admission Decision

Once the application is complete and the student has visited, Mr. Oldham meets with the admission committee in the appropriate academic division to make our decision.


If the student has been accepted for admission, Mr. Oldham will send a letter with the enrollment contract. To secure a spot, families sign and return the contract with a non-refundable tuition deposit ($500 for Preschool grades or $1,000 for K-12).
