Come Grow With Us
Thank you for considering Oak Knoll. We value your application and plan to review it with great interest and care. Our process is competitive, personal, and all about finding the right fit. We seek qualified young women who will enrich and be enriched by Oak Knoll. We hope that you’re one of them.

We routinely accept applications from students entering grades 7 and 9. Enrollment opportunities for grades 8 and 10 are based on attrition. Please contact the Upper School Admissions Office to discuss openings.

Admissions Process At a Glance

The 2021-22 application will be live soon! Oak Knoll will accept both Oak Knoll’s application and the SAO application. There is a $50 application fee. Upon completion of the application, you will be granted access to your application portal and checklist.

The application process must be completed by the below dates:

  • December 4, 2020: Early application process deadline
  • January 27, 2021: Regular application process deadline

Our campus is closed through January 2021. School visits, for those applying, will be virtual. Sample classes will be available on our website for you to view on demand. Zoom calls will be scheduled for the parent conferences and for the applicant to meet with admissions director and connect with OKS students. Visiting days fill up quickly and must be completed prior to the application deadline date.

We require two recommendations: one from a current English teacher and one from a current math teacher. These are found in the parent portal, which you will access once you apply.

Complete the Release of Records Form in the parent portal and dispatch it to your school office.

Applicants are required to take either the ERB Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) or the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT). You may register online at www.iseetest.org using the school member code 311430 or at www.ssat.org using the school code 5500. Testing will be virtual this year and can be arranged at the time and date you choose.Click here for the full Upper School Application Check List.
