The Application Process

We’re glad you’re exploring The Field School! Whether you are a prospective student or parent, we look forward to working with you through the application process! Field students thrive because we see them as individuals. Small classes allow every student to be heard, involved, and challenged.

We encourage you to attend one of our open houses “Discover Field” or join a weekly school tour, get to know our faculty and students, and meet with one of our admission team members. Below are the steps to complete an application. Field’s application is accessed through Ravenna. 

The deadline for admission applications for the 2022-23 school year is January 15, 2022.

Field will not require admission testing such as the SSAT or ISEE for the 2022-23 school year. For more information on supplemental materials, such as educational support documentation, please visit our Ravenna application
