Preliminary Online Application
Heschel uses the services of Ravenna to facilitate an online application.
Click here to submit your online application. The application deadline is December 9, 2022.
For technical assistance with the application forms, please email the Daniel Krane in the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Parent Questionnaire allows Heschel's Admissions team to better understand your child and your family. This form should be submitted before your Parent Interview.
Please submit a no-longer-than-two-minute video of your child doing whatever they enjoy most. This can be spliced clips or one shot — and should be easily recorded on a device of your choice (e.g. cell phone, iPad, computer). Keep it simple — no frills please! Submit your spotlight video to the Jotform link. Due prior to the Parent Interview.
Sign up through Ravenna to schedule your Parent Interview, either in-person or by Zoom. Prior to the interview, please be sure that the Parent Questionnaire and Spotlight Video have been submitted.
On Ravenna, delegate to your child’s teacher by entering their email address. Be sure to press "Submit" after entering the email address. The form will be emailed directly to the teacher, and they will return it directly to Heschel. Due January 13, 2023.
Financial Aid (if applicable)
