Application Process

Our goal is to make the application process go as smoothly as possible, so we have listed the basic steps below:

1. Visit Dominion

Schedule a tour to become personally acquainted with our program. Students who are applying for grades 7-12 should schedule a "shadow" visit, which is usually a half day attending classes and getting to know our students and teachers.

2. Submit an Application

Your admissions file is opened once we receive a completed application and fee.

3. Testing

Once we have received a completed application, we will contact you to schedule a testing date. Students applying for grades Kindergarten through 6 take either an oral developmental assessment or a written assessment of language arts and math. Students applying for grades 7 through 12 take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).

4. Interview

The family interview is a vital part of the admissions process. Once all paperwork and testing are complete, we meet with both parents (and students applying to grades 7-12). The interview provides a final opportunity to get to know one another and to access whether Dominion is a good fit for your family.

5. Notification

Applicants will be notified no later than February 15, 2017. Please note: The deadline for submitting an application is January 30, 2017. An application with the application fee, testing, and interview must be completed by this date. Any applications received after January 30, 2017, will be considered on a rolling admissions basis. Please call our admissions office at 571-267-7844 or email with any questions. The application process is thorough and can take several weeks. We suggest that families get started as early as possible so that the process can be conducted in a timely manner.
