Fall 2021 Step-by-Step Admission Process:

Fall 2021: Full Time School On Campus

As the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved, we have made changes to our admissions process to stay within the latest public health recommendations. Please check Ravenna for our schedule of virtual tours, open house, and one-on-one parent connection meetings.

To begin your application, or to apply:

  1. Set up an account in our online application system in Ravenna to see our checklist of application steps. Go to Ravenna here.
  2. In addition to your parent/guardian statements, we will need to collect a teacher evaluation and records from your current school (for applicants to grades 1-5). All files are submitted in Ravenna.
  3. After we receive your completed application, we'll be in touch to schedule a virtual visit for you and your child.
  4. If needed, please complete a Financial Aid Application. More info on financial aid is available here.

In fall 2021, Bertschi School will offer full-time, in-person five days per week. Students will be assigned to full-sized classes, and will have the option to attend extended day. Distance learning will only be offered if a COVID quarantine is indicated or if the Governor's travel advisory is still in place following regularly scheduled school breaks.

Most importantly, our faculty and staff will be present and prepared to meet our students where they are academically, socially, and emotionally.
