How to Apply

Fifth - Eighth Grade

  1. Schedule a visit of our school. Create an account through Ravenna, and choose Open Window School to "explore". This will allow you to register for a parent tour and/or our Open House. If you have applied and/or toured previously, you are welcome to visit us again, but it is not a requirement.
  2. Schedule your child’s IQ examination with a licensed psychologist. You can submit the IQ results directly to Open Window via postal mail or email, or you can request that the psychologist send it to us. Test results are valid for two years.
  3. Register your child for either the ISEE or SSAT and select Open Window School to receive your child’s scores. Please contact the Admissions office if you require a fee waiver for the SSAT.
  4. Access your Ravenna account to submit your child's application and application fee ($65).
  5. Delegate two of your child’s teachers (current and past, or two current) to fill out teacher evaluations through Ravenna. We suggest completing this step as soon as possible to allow your child’s teachers plenty of time to complete the evaluations.
  6. Print and sign a records request form through Ravenna and turn into your child’s current school. We ask for a report card from the current school year, as well as records from the previous two years. Open Window requires standardized achievement test results (ITBS, ERB, MSP, etc). If your child has not had standardized achievement testing administered through his/her current school, please contact the Admissions Office.
  7. Your child should complete the common student essays and activity form through Ravenna.
  8. Applicants visit Open Window School during the school day and spend their visit with a student in his/her current grade. These visits are our chance to get to know your child and for him/her to experience a typical school day at Open Window School. The Admissions Office will be in touch with you to schedule your child’s visit in late January after receiving your initial application.
