Each of the member schools offers families distinctive educational missions and opportunities while sharing a commitment to achieving excellence and inspiring innovation. Our goals are to educate families on the benefits of attending an independent school, to help each family find the independent school that is the best fit for their children, and to make the application process as welcoming as possible. The Consortium has, in many cases, created common recommendation forms, policies for visits, mailing dates for admission letters, tuition deposit receipt dates for acceptances, and policy against conflicting open houses or accepted student events.
(Please note that schools practicing a policy of rolling admission are exempt from common mailing date requirements.)
