How to Apply
Assistant Dir. of Advancement
Williams College, BA
Welcome to Sant Bani’s K-8 Admission process!
Choosing a new school for your child, whether they are about to start kindergarten or their current school isn't the best fit for them, is a process that involves both hope and anxiety. We understand! Thank you for considering Sant Bani as an option for your child; we look forward to working with you in partnership to discover whether SBS is a good fit. (No application is required for our Little Swans preschool; please inquire or register on their page.)
To be considered in the first round for admission, please submit the required forms to the Admission Office by February 1. (These forms can be downloaded below, or you may pick up an admission packet at the school.) You will also need to schedule a campus tour and student visit. Applicants who complete their paperwork by February 1 will be notified by mail of the admission decision in mid-March.
If you have missed this deadline, we encourage you to apply as we continue to accept applications throughout the year. Applicants will be considered as their files become complete and if space is available.
If you have applied in the past and wish to be considered for any new openings, please be in touch with the Admission Office on how to keep your application current.
Please email admission at santbani dot org or call us at 603-934-4240.
