The Application

The Watkinson application consists of several parts. Follow the links below to visit or download these forms:

* If it is more convenient for your process, you may submit the Standard Application Online instead of Watkinson’s application form. There is no need to submit both. Watkinson’s application cannot be completed on a mobile phone.

We need two confidential teacher recommendations; a math recommendation is required for proper placement. If you are a teacher, please make sure you DOWNLOAD and SAVE this form before filling it out and sending it back to us… otherwise the form will return empty and all your hard work will be lost!

We ask for two years of records. Please sign and submit to your child’s current school, and also submit a copy to Watkinson.

Applicants for grades 9–12 who have taken or will take the SSAT. are invited to submit their scores to Watkinson using our school code 8050. Please see Watkinson’s updated admission policy, effective fall 2020.
