*The online application is preferred. Alternatively, documents can be downloaded / scanned / and emailed to or handed to Admissions Office staff.

**One parent must accompany the applicant to the appointments. The parent is not interviewed, but is needed to share the official acceptance decision with.

***A family might inquire and learn that slots are available, but then later when documents are submitted (or on the day of appointments) hear the grade level has filled. Set appointments for the soonest available time. Accepted students are added to our Wait Pool if the grade is full. We will inform the family if a slot has opened. (Not applicable to company dependents with a slot reserved.)

Entrance Tests and Interviews

The Admissions Secretary schedules the entrance test and interview appointments after the application documents have been received and reviewed. The entrance tests are generally scheduled in the mornings, Monday through Friday. Interviews with the Director for Admissions, Guidance Counselor, and Principal are scheduled on the same day. The Principal shares the final acceptance decision, usually on the same day of the appointments.

Entrance tests and interviews must be completed at Brent. Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten applicants have play-based interviews but are not formally tested. Applicants to Kindergarten and above are tested and interviewed, including former Brent students returning after one or more years of absence from Brent.
