Apply to Middle School

Middle school is an exciting time to enter Dalton! Our middle school is the largest division at Dalton, spanning grades 4-8. We see tremendous growth in our students over these years as they develop from curious children to engaged young scholars, having enjoyed a middle school experience that is described by our middle school director as "a long runway to take intellectual risks, recognize successes and learn from missteps."

We primarily accept new middle school students into the sixth grade. The best time to apply to Dalton's middle school is during the fall of the applicant's fifth grade year; applications are no longer accepted after mid-November. Enrollment notifications are posted on Ravenna in February in accordance with the ISAAGNY timetable.

We do occasionally have space for a few new students in other grades based on attrition, or through collaborations with organizations such as Prep for Prep, but for the 2023-2024 academic year, we are currently only anticipating openings for the 6th grade. All other middle school grades (4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th) are closed for applications at this time, as we do not expect we will have additional places for new students available. If you wish to express your interest in a 'closed' grade, you may do so here; after you have submitted this inquiry form, rest assured that we will contact you in the event that we are able to consider new applicants for the grade you are looking for.
