Admission

The ROBS admission process is fashioned much like our learning program. We seek to identify the unique gifts of our applicants by getting to know each one through a developmentally appropriate process. The application steps therefore vary with each entry point. For example, applicants will participate in an interactive group activity that is typical of a ROBS learning experience at their grade level. 

We value these opportunities to know each applicant family personally for several reasons. It sets the stage for a synchronous parent-school partnership, which we believe is fundamental to student success. It also gives our Admission Committee a holistic appreciation of each child applying to ROBS.

How to Apply

The application for the 2023-24 school year is available via the button below. We also invite you to submit an inquiry form to express interest in ROBS for the 2024-25 school year and beyond.
