We host Open Houses in the summer, fall and winter for prospective families interested in admission to Browne for the next school year. Parents can also schedule a visit/tour of the campus by contacting the Office of Admission directly.
Open Houses typically include presentations by faculty and staff, including our Head of School and Director of Admission, and tours of our campus. You will have an opportunity to speak with teachers, current parents and student ambassadors. Tours of the school are held during a regular school day. Each tour gives a small group of visitors the unique opportunity to observe students and teachers in our classrooms.
3. Schedule a Student Visit
Once the Office of Admission has received your completed application, we will schedule a date for your child to visit Browne Academy. Applicants to our preschool three-year-old, four-year-old, Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs are invited to attend a short play date session.
Student applicants for 1st through 8th Grades are invited to spend a day visiting Browne Academy in their current grade.

6. Admission Decisions
The Admission Committee’s number one priority is to place a student in an academic and social environment where he or she can thrive and experience success. Admission decisions are based on many factors, including the student’s teacher recommendation, school records, test results, classroom visit and the availability of space in the grade to which the student is applying.
Admission decisions are mailed in early March and on a rolling basis thereafter. Upon acceptance to Browne Academy, the family must return the signed Enrollment Contract along with a non-refundable deposit within two weeks.
