Admissions Timeline

Welcome to our Admissions Timeline page! Event plans for the upcoming school year will be updated by the end of summer as state and county guidelines are changing rapidly. The health and safety of our community members and prospective families is at the heart of all our decisions. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these complex times. We can’t wait to get to know your family better throughout the process and are so excited that you are considering Branson as your future home. Please let us know if you have any questions. You can contact our office through email at

 - The Branson Admissions Team

*Registration for all Branson Events is required through Ravenna Hub unless stated. In order to register for admissions events, please create a Student Profile, find The Branson School in the School Directory, and press “Explore”. Once in our system, you will also receive notifications when we plan to open up registration for different admissions events throughout the season. Event registration will open at the end of summer. Thank you!
