Old Trail School seeks to enroll qualified, imaginative, and well-rounded students whose families understand and embrace the School’s mission of developing intellectually curious, independent thinking students who emerge with a passion for discovery, critical thinking and collaborative learning.
The admission processes and requirements for each program and grade level, as well as for international students, are outlined below. For Primary, Intermediate, and Middle School grades, the application process generally includes:
- Online Application for Admission (and application fee)
- School transcripts and testing scores (where applicable)
- Teacher evaluation(s)
- Screening or Visit Day (along with applicable assessments)
- Testing Session (Middle School only)
Admission is based upon a child’s preparedness to benefit from and succeed in the program, as determined by the School’s Admission Committee, as well as space availability. Because of the demand for Old Trail’s programs, we encourage families to complete the admission process by the application deadline.
School closing update: The health of our students and families is our first priority. In accordance with the order by Gov. DeWine and the Ohio Board of Health to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Old Trail School's campus is currently closed. Our Admission Office is available to work with your family either virtually or by phone. We encourage you to begin the online application and email our Admission Team
to learn more about our community. We will begin hosting tours and student visits as soon as allowed by the State of Ohio.
