Discover Mayfield

We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about Mayfield Junior School.

As a Holy Child School, our students experience the benefits of a whole child education - a blend of challenging academics, leadership, faith and service, athletics and the arts. Our students are engaged, confident, resilient and prepared to navigate the next level of their education. Each child is loved, appreciated for their uniqueness and encouraged to reach their fullest potential.

Admission requirements vary by grade and are designed to assess a child’s readiness for MJS. Beginning in June 2020, we have decided that going forward we will no longer be asking students to take ‘outside testing’ such as the Kindergarten Screening (KSP at ILS) and the ISEE (ERB) test.

This is my tenth year at Mayfield Junior School, and my twentieth year working in Independent School admissions. While these are unprecedented times, Mayfield continues to provide a Holy Child joyful academic community for our students and their families. MJS is a special place, my enthusiasm only increases as the school continues to grow and evolve each year.

Mayfield Junior School opened the 2020-21 academic year in remote learning on September 2. For information about our Ever Forward plan, click here.

I look forward to meeting your family, and sharing with you all the benefits of a Mayfield education.
