How to Apply

Our admissions process is an opportunity for you to see if CHA is a good fit for your child and your family. By visiting the school we hope you will learn what makes Chestnut Hill Academy stand out from all the other excellent options available to you. To start the application process, just click on the ‘Apply Online’ icon to be taken to Ravenna, where you will be able to schedule a visit or book a spot for our upcoming Open House.

There is a useful Ravenna User Guide for Parents which you can view here. Please be aware the Kindergarten applicants will need to have turned 5 by September 30th in the proposed year of entry. 

We also conduct rolling admissions throughout the year on a space-available basis. If you have missed the deadline, please email us at [email protected] or call us at (425) 372-2800 with any questions.  We still have one or two spots available for the 2020-21 school year.
