Let’s get started!

1. Admissions Tour
Submit an inquiry or give us a call (707-763-9222) to schedule an admissions tour. You will experience the life and culture of our unique school, get an overview of our curriculum and philosophy, meet teachers, and tour the campus and classrooms. You’ll also receive a complete packet of information, including program overviews and admissions forms. The tour is for adults only.

2. Application
Once you have attended a tour, complete an application (paper forms are available on request). The application gives us basic information about your student and is an opportunity for you to describe in your own words the kind of educational experiences you value. The application fee is $80 per applicant.

3. Student Records and Evaluation Request
Please submit the following forms to your child’s current school:

  • The Confidential Student Evaluation (Grade 1 / Grades 2–8 ) should be completed by your child’s current teacher.
  • The Student Records Request form should be submitted to the registrar at your child’s current school.

This documentation should be mailed or emailed directly from your child’s current school to:

The Spring Hill School—Admissions
825 Middlefield Drive “A”
Petaluma, CA, 94952

4. Student Shadow Day and Assessment
If space is available in the grade for which you are applying, your prospective student will spend a full school day at Spring Hill. They are paired with a classroom buddy for the day and will experience work time in the classroom as well as lunchtime and recess. Teachers will conduct a short academic assessment (30–45 minutes) of reading, writing, and math.

If space is not currently available in the grade for which you are applying, we will keep your application on file and schedule a shadow day and assessment if space opens.
