An applicant is approved for admission. The family reserves a slot by paying the Slot Reservation Fee and signing the Parent Agreement Form within three business days.
An applicant is approved for admission, but space is not available. The family can pay a refundable Wait Pool Fee to be considered if a slot opens.
The Admissions Office will notify the family if space becomes available. There is no guarantee that a space will open since it depends entirely upon if a currently enrolled student withdraws. Names remain on our Wait Pool (only for the academic year accepted for) until a space opens, or the family withdraws the application. It is advised to also seek enrollment at another school to ensure that the student has a school to attend.
Space availability can fluctuate on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. A family might inquire and be told space is available in a grade level, but by the time documents are submitted or on the day of the admissions appointments, be informed that space is no longer available. This can affect families new to Brent as well as families who already have other children enrolled at Brent. Since the Admissions Office has no control over the number of students applying or withdrawing, we appreciate your understanding if space availability changes. We realize that waiting for a space can be unsettling, and we encourage families to share their questions and concerns.
An applicant is not approved for admission. The Admissions Committee does not predict success for the applicant academically and/or socially. A minimum of six months is needed before reapplying. The Admissions Office will keep the original application materials, and there is no need to pay the application fee if admission is sought within one year of the initial application. New academic records, confidential evaluation forms, entrance tests and interviews are usually required for each additional reapplication.
