The Head-Royce application process begins each fall for the next school year for all grade levels. Candidates are urged to apply early. Decisions are released in March, with acceptances occasionally offered after based on availability of space.
Head-Royce uses a web-based application called Ravenna to manage submission of applications. Through Ravenna applicants are able to fill out required forms, submit supplemental application materials, and track application progress. New users will need to create an account with Ravenna. Returning users can log into their existing account using their username and password.
Fall 2023-24 applicants are required to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) for grades 2-5. In grades 6-12, testing is optional.
