Please note: Priority deadline for each school year is February 20th for day students. The school accepts day student applications throughout the spring and summer as well.
Admission letters are mailed to early applicants by March 20th.
Admission is “rolling” for international students; decisions are made as soon as possible once the application is complete.
Most students enter John Bapst in August. However, the school accepts day students throughout the year, and a small number of capable boarding students begin in late January (the beginning of the second semester).
If you have questions regarding the application process, please contact us at email@example.com 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).
