Admission Philosophy

ESD’s admission process is designed to admit qualified students who are capable of benefiting from the school’s college preparatory program and making a positive contribution to the school community.  The Office of Admission works to identify, attract and retain a diverse group of students who possess the following characteristics:  intellectual curiosity, willingness to serve others and community, self-motivation and a solid work ethic, admirable character, special talents, and an enthusiasm for involvement in the school’s extra-curricular activities.

Admission Policy for Community Applicants

In the ESD admission process, every effort is made to accommodate qualified applicants who are siblings of currently enrolled students, children of alumni, communicants of SMAA or children of full-time faculty.  However, admission decisions are based primarily upon the composite qualifications of the individual candidate, space available, and gender balancing.
