The Doane Stuart School seeks students who are academically talented and motivated; who will offer significant contributions to activities and programs; and who will benefit from a school that “emphasizes serious study, educates to social responsibility, and lays the foundation for a strong faith.”

Doane Stuart maintains a rolling admission policy.  The earliest possible completion of the process is highly recommended:

  • – Submission of an Admission Application online (or print and submit a hard copy)   accompanied by a $75 nonrefundable application fee.

  • – Submission of an official school transcript.  The Transcript / Records Release Form is to be completed and given to the Guidance Office of the student’s current school.  The student’s transcripts should be forwarded directly to Doane Stuart. 

  • – A Required Class Visit.  Please email contact@doanestuart.org or call the Admission Office at (518) 465-5222  to schedule a class visit. 

Class Visits

  • 45 minute visit for students entering N, Pre-K, K, Grade 1, and Grade 2

  • Two hour visit for students entering Grades 3, 4, or 5

  • Half a day for students entering Grades 6-12.

Students applying for admission during the summer months must meet with a member of the Admission team for an interview/evaluation. 

Testing

Students applying to grades 6-12 will complete a reading comprehension work sheet and write a short essay following their Class Visit.  Students may take standardized testing on campus, provide standardized testing scores taken within the last year, or submit results from SSAT testing.
