Please follow the steps below to apply to CRMS and let us know if there is anything at all that we can do to help guide you. We are still accepting applications on a rolling basis.

1. Complete a Preliminary Application Form
There are three application options for applicants to choose: CRMS Application, SSAT Standard Application Online, or the Gateway Application. Whichever application you choose, you will need to create an online account.  An application fee of $75 ($125 for international applicants) is required at the time of submission. 

2. Complete the Student and Parent Questionnaires
Students are asked to complete a series of short answer questions, as well as two essays. Parents are requested to complete a questionnaire as well. Both questionnaires are available in the application portal.

3. Submit Teacher Recommendations 
Students are asked to submit three teacher recommendations from an English teacher, math teacher, and guidance counselor/principal. Supplemental recommendations can also be sent and will be included in the student's file. All of the requests can be made electronically through the application portal. 

4. Submit a School Transcript
Applicants should request their current school to send an official transcript to the CRMS Admission Office. For students applying to 9th grade, only an 8th-grade transcript is required. Applicants for 10th-12th grade should provide a complete transcript for all high school years completed.

5. Register to take the SSAT (and optional Character Skills Snapshot) 
Register for the next administration of the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) at www.ssat.org, indicating that the scores should be sent to CRMS (school code: 2506), The SSAT is administered several times each year at CRMS and in more than 200 cities worldwide. For dates, locations and information, visit www.ssat.org.  

New this year, we are strongly recommending that all applicants take the Snapshot, which is designed to measure eight essential character skills. We value more than just your math and reading scores, and this is a way to learn more about you as a person.

6. Campus Visit and Interview
The best way to know if CRMS is the right school for you is to visit campus, tour classes, and meet with a member of our Admission Team for an interview. You will get a feel for our campus and our culture when you are here. (If a visit to campus is not an option, we can certainly make alternative arrangements for the interview.)

The Admission Office is available to support applicants and their family throughout this process. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions at all.
