Application Checklist

Explore Branson

Please go to the Ravenna Hub and create a Student Profile. Once you have an account on Ravenna Hub, find The Branson School in the School Directory and press “Explore” or “Apply.” Once on Branson’s splash page, you can register for our admissions events (Campus Visit & Interview, Open Houses, and Morning & Evening Coffees) and, if you choose to move forward, complete the steps for the application process.


Campus visits at Branson are designed to be casual, informative, and fun. Though we do our best to convey the Branson experience, the most authentic way for you to understand Branson life is to experience it firsthand. Your host will guide you through a typical Branson day, including classes, club activities, assembly, and a delicious lunch.

At the end of your Branson visit, you will have the opportunity to speak with a faculty or staff member about yourself and your day. We strive to make these interviews enjoyable and conversational. This is a time for us to get to know you and for you to ask any questions you have about Branson.

Campus Visits begin at 9:30 am and end between 2:30 pm and 3:15 pm, depending on the day you visit. We offer an optional parent/guardian tour during the morning part of the student visit, from 9:30 am to noon.
