Application Process

We welcome your interest in Mayfield Junior School and look forward to working with you throughout the application process. The outline below provides an overview of the steps required to complete the admissions process. Please do not hesitate to contact the admissions office at any time if you have questions or concerns.

Step 1: Inquire / Attend an Admissions Tour

To learn more about Mayfield Junior School and begin the admissions process, please complete an online inquiry. The information requested on the form allows us to open an applicant file for your child and will help streamline the process. Of course the best way to get to know Mayfield is to visit us. Upon completing the inquiry form, if you are new to our community we invite you to make a reservation to attend one of our Admissions Tours. A typical tour is approximately two hours and includes an introduction by Headmaster, Joseph J. Gill, a campus tour with classroom visits, and connections with faculty, students and current parents. Middle School applicants and their parents are also invited to attend an Information Night to learn more about the program.

Reservations are required and space fills up quickly. We invite you to take this opportunity to meet our warm, supportive community for yourself.
