Application Process & Timeline

We are currently accepting applications on a rolling basis for the 2020-2021 school year. 

To make the application process easier and more efficient for your family, King School uses SSAT’s Standard Application Online (SAO). Many of our peer schools also use the SAO. We hope that you will find this helpful and that it will free up your time to be thoughtful about finding your best fit school.


Step 1: Click on APPLY NOW to open the SAO homepage

Step 2: Sign-up or Sign-in to the SAO

Step 3: Start your application by following the instructions to complete the Student Profile and submit your application fee. Applications started after December 13 will be considered on a rolling basis. Please contact the Admission Office for information.

You may return to your application at any time to complete the Parent Statement, Student Essays (if applicable) and send Teacher Recommendations and Transcript Release Forms.

Please Note: Student Visits may be scheduled once we receive the Student Profile and the non-refundable $75 application fee.


Please see grade-specific information below for details on required forms and recommendations. For more flexibility in scheduling, we recommend families submit the student profile as soon as possible. Please contact the Admission Office with any questions.

King School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

A Better Standard for Education

At King School, we seek more than achievement for our students. We open minds and spark courageous thinking.

Every day, our students discover and forge their unique paths to excellence as we teach, guide, and cheer them on.

Because when we set better standards for both the experience and outcomes of education, students cultivate the insights and heart to own their future.
