The Application Process

We're looking for intellectually curious candidates who are as excited about La Lumiere as we are.

Step 3: The Application

Sign up and submit your application through the Standard Application Online (SAO) on The SSAT website. Admissions is on a rolling basis. 

Note: Our 2019-20 application will be open on October 1, 2018. If you would like to inquire about the 2018-19 school year, please contact Brian Tonino at


Step 4: Financial Aid

Submit your application for financial aid (if applicable). 

The benefits of a La Lumiere education are many and comprise the foundation of our students’ future success. We believe that the value of the La Lumiere experience is clear, but understand that affording an independent school tuition can sometimes present a significant obstacle. As such, we diligently work to help qualified families close the gap between what they can afford and the cost of a La Lumiere education. 

Each academic year, La Lumiere provides financial assistance to one in four of our students who, for financial reasons, could not otherwise attend the school. Financial assistance decisions are based upon the need of the family and have no bearing on our admission decisions. 

La Lumiere uses a third-party verification company, FACTS, to determine the eligibility of families interested in applying for tuition assistance. Families interested in applying for financial assistance should log into the FACTS website and follow the step-by-step instructions provided.


It is the policy of La Lumiere School not to discriminate in violation of the law on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, gender identity and expression, national origin, ancestry, or physical or mental disability which are unrelated to the ability to work or enjoy the benefits of the school's programs, facilities, or services. All persons are encouraged to apply.
