Application Components

List of 13 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 tuition assistance; please email tuitionassistance@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 & Campus Visit

    After you have submitted the Application Form, we will contact you to schedule your family's interview and campus visit. Your visit will last approximately two hours and it will include a tour, a student interview, and a conversation with parents(s)/guardian(s).

    The Application Form must be submitted before an interview and campus visit 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 before the deadline, interview appointments are limited.  We therefore encourage families to submit the Application Form as early as possible. After all appointment slots have been filled, we create a waiting list for interviews.

    Application Form Deadline: November 15th

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 12th. Please write to our office if transcripts will not be released by the deadline so that we may make a note in your child's file.

  • 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.

    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 12th
