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. 

  • – Completion of the Financial Aid process (if applicable).  If applying for aid, please note that an admission decision will not be released until the Financial Aid application is completed.  Learn more and apply for aid HERE.

  • – A Required Class Visit. To schedule a class visit, request one HERE, email or call the Admission Office at (518) 465-5222

Class Visits

  • 45 minute visit for students entering Early Childhood, Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2
