Menlo School Admission Events 2022-2023

Some of our events will remain virtual and some will be in-person on our campus. Beginning in September, families will be able to register for all of our events through their Ravenna account.

Testing Policy for the 2022-2023 Admission Season

Menlo will remain test-optional for the 2022-2023 Admission Season. As part of our commitment to equity for all applicants, Menlo will not require testing for Fall 2023 admission. We recognize that standardized testing creates inequities for a variety of reasons, from bias to unequal access to test prep and tutoring. We will continue to evaluate the role of standardized tests in our admission process moving forward.
