How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Breck. The standard admissions process at Breck runs from mid-summer through February 1 for the following school year. If you are still planning to apply for the 2017-18 school year, please note that the February 1 deadline has passed. We welcome applications throughout the year but please know that applications received after February 1 will be given consideration as space permits. At this time, we are no longer accepting financial aid applications for the 2017-18 school year. To begin the application process, click on the "apply" buttons above. 

The following list outlines all the steps you need to complete the application process. Required forms are all available for download (below). While Breck accepts applicants at every grade level, our major entry points are preK, K, 5th, 6th, and 9th grade. For each of these grades we add between 10 and 30 new students every year. To schedule visits, conferences or tours — or to ask questions — please contact Jan Lewandowski in the admissions office at 763.381.8200.
