Application Notes
Hopkins School only accepts applications for Day students and does not have a boarding program.

Interviews are required and can be scheduled upon receipt of the candidate profile (Part 1) and application fee, however, it is helpful to complete the Hopkins Part Two BEFORE the interview as it personalizes and frames the content of the discussion. (Please note that recommendation letters, grade reports and test scores (Part Three) need not be submitted before the interview, but are due by January 15.)

Student Nondiscrimination Policy
Hopkins admits qualified students to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded to or made available to students at the School, without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin, alienage, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other basis prohibited by law. The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, alienage, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other basis prohibited by law (referred to as “protected categories” or “protected classes”) in any of its educational programs or in the administration of its educational policies, including admissions, financial aid, athletics and other school-administered programs.

Although Hopkins is not generally equipped to provide individualized educational programming for students with significant disabilities, the School complies with applicable federal and state laws and will make reasonable accommodations and/or modifications to policies, procedures and practices for an otherwise qualified student with a disability to assist them in the meeting the academic and behavioral performance standards of the School. Hopkins provides reasonable accommodations for students with learning-related or other disabilities when the School is in receipt of documentation from a qualified professional and a written request of the parent/guardian and student. Reasonable accommodations do not require the fundamental alteration of Hopkins' academic standards or program, and must not create an undue burden on the School.
To the extent permitted by law, Hopkins reserves the right to determine for itself what reasonable accommodations or modifications it is able to provide for students with disabilities or highly specialized needs. Students seeking an academic or other accommodation or modification to any of the School's policies as a result of a diagnosed disability should contact the Dean of Academics and provide appropriate documentation, including a complete and current copy of any relevant testing, evaluation or diagnosis. If the information is insufficient, the School may request additional information. With respect to academic test accommodations, the School will generally follow the Educational Testing Service (ETS) guidelines for diagnosing and documenting learning disabilities. Thus, a student requesting accommodations from Hopkins for the first time or renewing documentation to qualify for accommodations at Hopkins and/or accommodations on ERB's, PSAT's, SAT's, ACT or AP's should have documentation that follows the ETS guidelines, available at All requests for accommodations will be considered on an individual basis. If, after careful review of all information and collaboration with the student and their family, the School determines it cannot reasonably provide services or accommodations a student may need or require without undue burden or fundamental alteration of its program, Hopkins reserves the right to deny admission or to require withdrawal, or not re-enroll, to the extent permitted by law.
