How to Apply to Evans

We are currently accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are limiting the number of visitors to our campus and thus cannot hold regular in-person tours. Instead, we can meet over Zoom to get to know one another and answer any questions. Once a family has applied, they will be able to visit campus after-hours, as part of their child’s assessemnt.

    • View PDF INSTRUCTIONS of how to create a new account.
    • There is a $125 applicaiton fee that will be collected on the last step.
    • Shortly after submitting the application, a checklist will be assigned on the Evans Portal, however scheduling and progress of the application will be communicated via direct contact with the admissions director.
  3. Request Records and Recommendations
  4. Student Evaluation
    • Typically in January or February, the applying student will meet with the incoming teacher or admissions director to complete grade appropriate assessments. Children do not need to prepare for the assessment. Teachers are looking to visit with the child, and to get an idea of their previous education. It is a nice opportunity for the child to feel more comfortable with Evans as well.
    • *Please note: if your child is applying to Junior Kindergarten or Kindergarten, and is also applying to La Jolla Country Day School or Francis Parker School, they are only required to take the Gesell Early Screener (GES) at one of the schools. Please notify the Evans Admissions office BEFORE your visit, so that we can ensure your child does not repeat the test. Evans, LJCDS, and Francis Parker School have a partnership and will share screening results with each other.
