From Application to Decision

Although you can apply at any time, the preferred timeframe of Edgewood’s admissions process is given below. Applying is free and can be done online. Our calendar of events for incoming freshmen is also a helpful, easy-to-read document for anyone going through the admissions process.

December 15

Edgewood’s application for admission is online and is available beginning October 15. Application and accompanying materials are due by December 15. There is no application fee. The admissions office will also need the following:

A copy of the 7th grade end-of-year report card.

• A copy of the student’s STAR 360 assessment test scores, or an indicator in the online application that the test was or will be taken elsewhere and results are pending.

Some students will take the STAR 360 standardized test through their current school in the fall of 8th grade. Edgewood uses results from this test as a supplement to the admission application. Students who take STAR 360 through their own school may submit a copy of their scores to EHS Admissions when applying and do not need to test through Edgewood. EHS also administers the STAR 360 by appointment for students who don’t take this test through their school.


January 15

Applicants receive a letter of admission by January 15. Letters of admission/invitation are mailed to all students at the same time—an exciting milestone!
