Steps to Apply for 2020-21 School Year:

  • Complete the online admissions application by December 15. 
  • Submit a copy of the student's end-of-year 7th grade report card.
  • Submit a copy of the student’s STAR 360 assessment test scores*, or indicate on 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.
