How to Apply



Submitting your application to John Bapst is easy. Click here to apply online.

Please note: Priority deadline for the 2018-19 school year is March 1, 2018 for day students. The school accepts day student applications throughout the spring and summer as well.

Admission is "rolling" for international students; decisions are made as soon as possible once the application is complete. For January 2018, students are encouraged to apply before November 15, 2017. For August 2018, applications are accepted beginning in November. Most students enter John Bapst in August. However, the school accepts day students throughout the year, and a small number of boarding students begin in late January (the beginning of the second semester).

If you have questions regarding the application process, please contact us at or call Director of Admission Beth Campbell at 207-947-0313 ext. 108, Office Manager Karen Bender (ext. 113), International Program Director Louisa Deng (ext. 163), or Head of School Mel MacKay (ext. 103).
