UPPER SCHOOL ADMISSIONS
Ramaz welcomes families who share our goals of academic and spiritual growth for their children. Our Virtual Open House on Saturday night November 7, 2020 will provide you with the opportunity to explore our Judaic and General Studies classes, meet our faculty and students, and discover all factors that make Ramaz unique and special. If you are interested in attending please register here.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to host in person visits to our building. We are excited to welcome students and parents in a variety of new ways! We are working on a calendar of remote classes for prospective students and parents throughout Fall and Winter 2020. We encourage prospective families to check back in to our admissions timeline for the updated class schedule options available for advance sign up. Please continue to check back throughout the year as we will likely be inviting prospective families to additional programs.
Once we have received your application (by November 23, 2020) and $150 processing fee, we will contact you regarding your child's interviews. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, all admissions interviews will be held via Zoom. Students will receive their Zoom link in advance of their interview. Students will also be required to compose two writing samples, one English and one Hebrew, as part of their interview.
A complete application includes two recommendations from recent teachers, one General Studies and one Judaic studies. Middle School report cards/transcripts from the last 2 years must be requested to be sent to the Ramaz Admissions Office in advance of the deadlines. The request form for parents to complete can be found by clicking here. An email will be sent directly to the applicant’s teachers and school administrator with the formal request and recommendation forms. Please see our Admissions Timeline and Application Checklist for deadlines.
Applicants for 9th grade are required to take the Yeshiva High School Placement Exam (The BJE's), comprised of the Judaic Studies JSAT level 8 exam. The General Studies component has been cancelled this year. Instead, parents must request the latest standardized test scores from their child’s middle school be sent to the Ramaz Admissions Office as part of the transcripts/report cards. For our complete list of application requirements, please see our Admissions Timeline and Application Checklist.
A complete application will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Late applications will be reviewed on a space-available basis. Applications for transfer students into grade 10 are reviewed on a rolling basis after March 3, 2021.
Ramaz is committed to providing tuition assistance to those who require it. All tuition assistance information is kept in the strictest of confidence and has no bearing on admissions decisions.
Early tuition assistance is offered to families that are new to Ramaz in order to make the enrollment decision easier. If families provide completed applications by the early deadline, we will provide tuition assistance packages prior to the due date for enrollment.
