Step 3: Apply

Please complete the Application for Admission online to start the application process. Checklists are provided for each school level to help you complete all the necessary steps which will include references, records and a questionnaire for grades 6th through 12th. An entrance Exam will be required for 9th grade and assessment tests may be given for other grades. Decisions regarding acceptance are made by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Office will notify you once a decision has been made. 

Step 4: Enroll

Once your child is accepted to Finney, you will receive an email with instruction about how to complete an online enrollment packet. This enrollment packet includes sections on tuition, medical information, emergency contact information, and requests for other supplemental forms and documents. The tuition agreement section is a contract and includes your financial obligation to pay the appropriate tuition and fees for the upcoming year. Once the enrollment packet has been submitted and the registration fee payment is received, your child will be enrolled for the next school year.

Once a student is accepted, a family may also decide to apply for financial assistance and/or scholarships through FACTS, the online program that Finney uses for financial aid and tuition management. Information about tuition and financial assistance is available in our Financial Aid/Scholarships section.

The Admissions Office is available to answer any questions you may have about this process.
