Lower School Application Process

The Tatnall School considers applications for admission on a rolling basis. Beginning in December 2022, once a family completes the application process, the Committee will review all materials, including Financial Aid applications, and communicate the admission and financial aid decision. The first round of admissions decisions will be issued in January. The decision package will include information regarding the time frame for family response to secure students' enrollment. 

In addition, please keep in mind that the majority of admission decisions occur in January and February. It is recommended that all admission application materials and Financial Aid applications for prospective students be completed by February 1, 2023; however, we continue to work on rolling admissions basis after this date.
