Steps to Apply

The online application is available in the Gann Admissions Portal. To gain access to the Admissions Portal, please contact our office at (781) 642-6800. The deadline for admissions applications for the 2019-2020 academic year is Tuesday, January 15, 2019.

Gann requires all 9th-grade applicants to take the SSAT* no later than January to be considered a first-round applicant. When you register for the SSAT, please request that your scores be reported directly to Gann Academy using our school code, 5311.

STEP ONE: Activate Your Candidate Profile

Take the first step towards joining our community by Activating Your Candidate Profile. This gives you access to our online application and will also help us stay in contact with your family over the coming year. Families with more than one child interested in applying should create a separate candidate profile for each child. You may also call our office at (781) 642-6800 to speak with an admissions representative at any time. 

STEP TWO: Schedule a Family Tour and Interview

The best way for you to learn about Gann is to join us for a personalized family tour of our campus. During your visit, you and your family will tour the Gann campus and interview with a member of the Admission Team. Additionally, we will ask you to complete a writing exercise. In order for us to get to know your family, this is a required step in our application process. It is also an excellent opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have. Dress as yourself and be yourself because our purpose is to get to know the real you.

STEP THREE: Apply Online

Once you schedule a tour, we will provide you with a username and password, granting you access to our Admissions Portal. This is where you will find our online application along with a checklist to help manage the progress of your application.

STEP FOUR: Admission's Decisions Are Released

Applicants who submitted their application by the January 15 deadline will be notified of our admissions decision on March 10. Decisions will be made available via the Admissions Portal.

STEP FIVE: Enrollment Contract Deadline

Admitted students have until April 10 to submit their online enrollment contract and deposit.

STEP SIX: Join the Gann Community!

Newly admitted students will be invited to come together as a cohort in the Spring for orientation and course registration.
