have a large window of time during which they can apply to Germantown Academy.
The application process opens up at the beginning of February, and often
continues right through the summer months. We
strongly encourage all interested families to apply.
Unlike our priority decision
process with firm application and notification deadlines, rolling admission
applicants are often notified of their decision within a few weeks of the
Admission Office receiving a completed application. The application process is
the same, and includes visits and/or interviews, testing, and all necessary
paperwork. We continue to accept
applications for as long as spaces are available.

Process, we encourage you to call our office at (267) 405-7251.
