High School: Grades 9-12 Admissions Checklist:

Open House

As we look forward to hopefully opening our doors in September, it remains unlikely we will be having admissions tours or an Open House in the fall. That said, we WILL have many alternative opportunities for you to explore The Heschel School!  A virtual tour will become available later this summer, and we will, at that time, post information on the admissions process for entrance in Fall of 2021.  In the meantime, please explore our website for a glimpse into student life at Heschel, and email with any questions.

Online Application

Heschel uses the services of Ravenna to facilitate our online application.

Test Scores
