Applyto Our School

Thank you for your interest in Edgewood! We are fortunate to enroll students from approximately 40 different middle schools in communities throughout Dane County. Our families bring diverse cultural and ethnic heritages, socioeconomic backgrounds, and experiences, all united by the choice to attend EHS. We encourage families of incoming freshmen to get started early in the enrollment exploration process.

How to Apply

Eighth grade families considering enrollment should attend upcoming exploration events, including the fall open house, individual parent/student appointments and tours, and a student shadow day. Applications are due on December 15 of the school year prior to enrollment. Applications must include:

  • copy of the student’s final report card from seventh grade
  • Star 360 standardized test scores

There is no application fee, and we notify students of admission by January 15.  At that time, programming for admitted students continues so all applicants and their families have ongoing opportunities to learn more about EHS, course selection, and placement.

We honor each family’s individual questions and the factors that influence high school choice. Feel free to contact the EHS Admissions Office with any questions.

Applying as a Transfer Student

Families considering a transfer to Edgewood High School from another high school have a unique set of questions. You will work closely with EHS Admissions to determine the best timing for a transfer and whether the circumstances match a successful transfer plan. Students who transfer to EHS should be above average students taking a challenging grade-level curriculum at their current school. Edgewood allows mid-year transfers on a very limited basis and only if a child’s academic background is exceptional and the student can begin classes at the start of the new semester.

International Applicants

Each fall, Edgewood High School welcomes international students into the community. EHS is a day school program with no boarding options. The families of applicants need to secure a host family and/or assign guardianship. Applicants must demonstrate English proficiency by passing the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) because Edgewood High School does not offer a program in English as a Second Language (ESL). You can obtain additional admissions requirements, including I-20 information, by contacting the Admissions Office at or 608-257-1023 ext. 131.
