Admissions Process

Brawerman and some 60 other Los Angeles area independent schools agree each year to follow a common timetable and principles of good practice.

 

Application Instructions for the 2019-2020 School Year

 

Complete the online Admission Application through our admissions portal on SchoolAdminOnline and submit along with payment of the non-refundable $150 application fee.

  • Applicants to Kindergarten must be five years old on or before September 1, 2019.
  • Applications are due Friday, January 11, 2019.

When we receive the completed application, you will be invited to a parent interview. We ask that both parents (where appropriate) be present for this meeting. The one-hour time frame offers you an opportunity to ask questions about our school program and allows us to learn more about your child and your family.

For students applying from schools other than Glazer, we will make arrangements with your child’s current school to observe your child. No preparation is necessary on your part.
