Middle & High School (4-12)

How to Apply

We typically enroll new students in 6th grade for middle school or 9th grade for high school.  The application process takes place during the fall, one year before the student wishes to enter Dalton (in other words, the fall of the student's 5th grade year for middle school entry or the fall of the student's 8th grade year for high school entry).
We are no longer accepting applications for September 2018 entry.  We will begin accepting applications for Dalton's middle or high school (6th and 9th grades only) for September 2019 entry on September 4, 2018.

Submitting Your Application

Dalton is one of many schools in New York using a web-based software application called Ravenna for receiving applications and managing the collection of supplemental forms such as essays, photos, transcripts, and teacher recommendations.  Applications are available online (beginning September 4, 2018, until our application submission deadline of November 16, 2018 at noon) on Ravenna's website, and Ravenna will allow you to track the status of your application and help you to easily manage the requirements of the admission process.

The first step in the process is to go to www.ravenna-hub.com and create an account.  Make sure to create your account using an email address you will have access to throughout the admissions season because this will be your primary email contact with our school. 

From there, you are able to submit your application and review the details of all required steps of the admission process, including scheduling appointments for visiting the school.  Throughout the fall, the Ravenna system will allow you to track Dalton's receipt of recommendations, transcripts, test scores, and other required documents.  We will also communicate admission decisions through Ravenna.  

If at any point you should have any technical questions about using Ravenna, please contact them at customercare@ravennasolutions.com.  Ravenna is happy to answer your inquiry by phone, however, they require that all support inquiries are initiated through the email address you used to create your Ravenna account.  It is important that you are able to validate your access to any information about your applicant's account to protect your privacy.  Of course, we are always happy to answer your more general questions about applying to Dalton, too!  Our office phone number is (212) 423-5262.
