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. Please add these email addresses to your contacts and to be sure of receiving communication from us!

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 will begin welcoming applications for the 2023-24 school year in September of 2022, and applications for the 2023-24 school year that are submitted after the January 13th deadline will be processed after the March 17th decision date. We still have some limited availability remaining in select grade levels for the 2022-23 school year. Please email us at or 425.372.2800 with questions.

“We have been a Bright Horizons family for couple years. When my son was in preschool we have toured the school, from then on, we decided we will go there so we moved to the place where is closer to school. My son has been in the school for less than one year, and the school doesn’t disappoint us at all. All kind of activities, from family math night to stem night, from field trip to ski days (one day a week for five days), personalized class for kids, enriched curriculum, my son can’t be happier. Last Christmas, I planned a trip which would miss some school days , my son almost cried and told me 'I don’t want to miss any school day, could you plan the trip in no school days next time'. Last and most important thing I want to say is we love the head of school, Holly so much!”

"We are very content with the quality of the education, friendly staff and teachers, and how much importance is given to qualities like kindness and greatness."
