King School Students

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 14 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: At this time, Student and Parent interviews will be conducted using Zoom and may be scheduled once we receive the portion of the application that the prospective family submits:

  • Student Profile
  • Parent Evaluation or Statement
  • Student Essays (Grades 6-12 only)
  • Non-refundable $75 application fee

For flexibility in scheduling Zoom interviews, we recommend that families complete the steps above as early as possible. All application components, including interviews, must be completed by December 14 to be considered in Round 1.*

*Testing for PreK and K and transcripts from schools that release after December 14 will be accepted after the deadline and will still be considered in Round 1.

King is committed to a 100% virtual admissions process at this time. For applicants and their families who feel strongly about seeing the physical campus, limited tour times will be available after the family portion of the application is complete. Click here to see our virtual campus tour
