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.

Test-Blind for Fall 2023

As part of our commitment to equity for all applicants, Menlo will not accept standardized 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.
