Application Components

List of 12 items.

  • Application Form

    To begin the admissions process, please submit a completed Application Form, along with a $75 nonrefundable application fee. This fee is waived for applicants who are also applying for financial aid; please email finaid@trevor.org to obtain the fee waiver code. We encourage families to submit the Application Form as soon as possible, to ensure availability of an interview appointment. We also encourage you to include a photo of the applicant, but this is not mandatory.

    Due Date: November 15th
  • Interview

    Interviews will be held virtually for the 2021-22 admissions season. After you have submitted the Application Form, we will contact you to schedule your family's interview appointment (scheduling will begin after Labor Day). The Application Form must be submitted before an interview appointment is scheduled. 
     
    An interview is a required part of the admissions process. While we do our best to schedule all families who submit an application, interview appointments are limited. We therefore encourage families to submit the Application Form as early as possible. After all appointment slots have filled, we create a waiting list for interviews. 
  • Financial Aid

    If your family is applying for financial aid, please answer “yes” to the relevant question on the Application Form; email our office at finaid@trevor.org to obtain a fee waiver code before you submit your application. Families requesting financial aid must complete a TADS application (Tuition Aid Data Services) by January 1st.

    TADS applications will be available online at www.mytads.com after October 1st. There is a single fee of $34 for submitting a TADS application, regardless of how many schools receive the financial aid summary report. There are no fee waivers for TADS applications.

    Due Date: January 1st

    Los padres que prefieren compartir sus respuestas en español están invitados a escribir en su idioma. De esa manera podrán hablar más profundamente de su hijo. Tenemos hispanohablantes en el comité de admisiones de Trevor.

  • Official School Transcripts

    Please provide your student’s current school with a signed Transcript Release form by December 1st. This form authorizes the submission of your student’s cumulative school record (two prior years and current-year transcript, as well as any standardized testing) directly to Trevor. Official transcripts must come directly from the school and will be treated as confidential.

    We understand that some schools will not release transcripts that include the current year until after January 7th. Please write our office if transcripts will not be released by the deadline so that we may make a note in your child's file.

    Due Date: January 7th
  • Math and English Teacher Recommendations

    After November 15th, please request recommendations from your student’s current math and English teachers. This time frame ensures that the teacher has had an opportunity to get to know them. Trevor uses the ISAAGNY common recommendation forms, which are sent as delegated forms by families to teachers through Ravenna.

    All applicants for 6th-12th grades should submit separate ISAAGNY math and English recommendations (including 6th-grade applicants who have a single teacher for all subjects). 

    Recommendations from prior-year teachers are accepted, but may not be submitted in place of the current-year recommendation requirement. 

    Due Date: January 7th
  • Math Curriculum Overview (Grades 9-12)

    In an effort to better understand the math curriculum content and mastery of our applying students, please delegate the Math Curriculum Overview form to your student’s current math teacher after December 1st. Forms submitted before this date will not be accepted.

    There are separate forms for grade 9 and grades 10-12 – please delegate the form appropriate to your student’s applying grade level.

    Due Date: January 7th
  • Standardized Testing

    For the 2021-22 admissions season, Trevor will continue its suspension of both the requirement and acceptance of ISEE and/or SSAT test scores in our Middle and Upper School admissions process. This decision was made in response to the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on equal access to these exams for all students. 
  • Personal and/or School Counselor Recommendations (Optional)

    If there is someone you feel would provide an additional perspective on your student, please have them submit their recommendation through the Personal and/or School Counselor Recommendations form in Ravenna.
