Please go to Ravenna Hub and create a Student Profile. When you have an account, find The Branson School in the School Directory and press “Explore”. Once in our system, you will receive notifications before we open up registration for admissions events. After we open up, you will need to press “Apply” to be able to sign up for admissions related events and begin your application process.
*Please Note: 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.
For the 2020-2021 admissions season, all Campus Visits will be in virtual format. With the spread of COVID-19, we are unable to have visitors on our campus. The Virtual Visit will still be required as part of the application process. Our school leadership team is currently in the process of planning the upcoming school year, making the appropriate adjustments given the impact of the pandemic. As plans are solidified, we will be updating this page throughout the summer. Please check back for updated information on admissions dates and virtual events that will showcase the Branson experience this fall.
For the 2020-2021 admissions season, all Interviews will be held through Zoom. During your Interview, you will have the opportunity to speak with a Branson faculty or staff member. 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. Interviews will be approximately 20 minutes. There is no need to prepare for your Interview. We just want to get a natural sense of who you are.
Once you have submitted the Preliminary Application Steps (Common Application Form, & Application Fee/Fee Waiver Code), you may register for an Interview onRavenna Hub. The Interview is required as part of the application process and separate from the Campus Visit.
Branson will not require standardized test scores as part of the application process for the 2020-2021 admissions season. Given the challenges regarding safety and access to testing this upcoming season, we do not feel it is equitable to require a standardized test score as part of our application. Test scores may be submitted but we will not use these scores to evaluate our applicants this season.
