American Heritage School supports families through a five-step admissions process:

  • Learn about AHS

    American Heritage School encourages families interested in applying to the school to watch a 8-minute introductory video, review the school’s website, call the school, request a tour, visit our classrooms, and attend school community events. Families may learn about upcoming events from the school’s homepage.

  • Submit Application

    Complete American Heritage School’s online application. Applicants are considered after the online application is submitted and all supporting documentation is submitted (see How to Apply) .

  • Interview


    As completed applications are received, American Heritage School contacts each family to set up interview. The prospective student(s) and both living parents should attend the interview together whenever possible.

  • Academic Evaluation

    An academic assessment helps American Heritage School learn in what ways it can support the student and family. Tests vary in length from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the grade-level of the prospective student. All families receive personal feedback within a few weeks following this assessment. Read more about our academic evaluation and expectations.

  • Receive Notification from AHS

    Within 2-4 weeks of the academic assessment, admission letters detailing each child’s admission status are mailed to applying families.

  • Priority Acceptance Policy; Admission Criteria

    For more information, read our Priority Acceptance Policy.

    Families may request assistance from the school’s admissions office at any point in the enrollment process. We look forward to receiving your application!
