Welcome to Menlo!

At Menlo, we strive to develop each student’s unique talents and passions as they chart their own paths, discover new interests, and grow the agency and optimism needed to lead a life of meaning, impact, and joy. Our students are passionate learners eager to take advantage of our dynamic, wide-ranging academic, arts, and athletic programs while being supported by inspiring and innovative teachers in reaching their full potential. A strong community is at our core, and Menlo families share our commitment to building a kind, inclusive culture where all are seen and celebrated.

To begin your Menlo journey, start by creating an account on Ravenna and exploring the Menlo website. The website search bar is an invaluable resource where you can discover more about our beautiful campus, distinctive courses and programs, and whatever else interests you. Throughout the fall you will have opportunities to develop deeper insight into our mission and values by connecting personally with various members of our community.

Registration for admissions events and our application for admission to grades 6-12 for Fall 2024 are now available on Ravenna. Our application for Financial Aid is also available through Clarity.

We look forward to sharing our passion for Menlo and supporting you in finding the right school for your family. Please reach out to anyone in the Admissions Office for assistance or with questions—we are here to help.
