Teresa Smith - Director of Admissions & Enrollment

This page is designed to help you and your family find the resources and tools you need to apply to Northside. Given the global pandemic, our admissions process will look slightly different than in ordinary times, but meeting with and getting to know your child and your family as unique individuals are the most important parts of our process. Admission is based on parent conversations, children’s assessments, and a child’s academic and social potential. To further demonstrate our commitment toward greater accessibility, inclusivity, equity, and a holistic application review, we will not require the ISEE or SSAT as part of the application process for the 2021-2022 school year.

Click each step below for more details. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, as we stand at the ready to support you throughout the journey to Northside.
