Application Process

Our admissions process is highly personalized, and our goal is to learn as much as possible about your child while we, in turn, help you learn more about our program and community. We encourage prospective families to attend an Admissions Information Session or connect with an Admissions representative before beginning an application. Our Admissions staff will provide guidance and support to help you submit your child’s application, explore opportunities for financial support, and make connections with members of the MPH community so that you can make an informed decision about accepting an offer of admission, if extended.

Application Requirements

An application to MPH begins with submission of our Online Application Form. Please note that there is a $60 application fee charged at the time of submission.* You will then be prompted to provide some supplemental materials that will help us to learn more about your child. These materials vary by grade level and can all be easily submitted using our online application portal. (See below for a list of supplemental items by grade level.)

*MPH is committed to accessibility in all aspects of our program, including our admissions process. Please contact us at admissions@mphschool.org if you have concerns over your ability to pay the application fee so that we may offer guidance and support.

Application Deadline

MPH accepts applications on a rolling basis until all available spaces are filled. Because there is often a high demand for a limited number of available spaces, priority consideration for admission and financial support will be given to applications completed before March 31. (Applications can always be submitted after that date, though admissions consideration will be contingent upon space availability.)

Admissions Decisions and School Visits

Admissions decisions are communicated on a rolling basis, depending upon when your application was completed. We allow families time to consider our admissions offer, ask questions, connect with our community, and explore financial support before deciding whether to enroll their child.

Families who have received an offer of admission are given the opportunity to tour campus and connect with our faculty, students, and administrators. Students accepted to Middle & Upper School also have an opportunity to attend a Visit Day in the spring to experience a “day in the life” at MPH. Lower School student visits are offered in the spring for students accepted to Grades 4 and 5.
