Work for TABS! Apply for our Professional Development department opening.
Once you've narrowed your options to a few choices, you can begin the application process. It is fairly straightforward.
First, contact the schools you want to apply to and ask them for their application requirements and deadlines. Many schools have a fixed admission calendar with set dates for applying and admission notification. Some schools offer rolling admission, which means they will accept applications on a space-available basis throughout the year or after published application deadlines. Has the deadline passed? Check out AdmissionsQuest's new (free!) eBook: Applying to Private Schools After the Deadline.
In addition to deadlines, also ask schools about the required tests for student applicants. If interested, also ask for need-based financial aid and merit scholarship information and deadlines. Keep all these application deadlines together in one place so you can refer to them easily.
Second, arrange to take the required tests. These generally include one or more of the following:
Third, complete and forward applications to your selected schools. Find out if the schools accept the TABS Admission Application. Most do, and using the TABS application cuts down on the duplication of paperwork. Follow up with teachers, coaches, and your registrar to make sure they've sent the recommendations or transcripts they're submitting on your behalf.
Fourth, complete any aid or scholarship applications you want to submit. See our financial aid section for more information.
