We are excited to share our vibrant learning community with you and to show you how a Moses Brown education lasts a lifetime. Please make note of our admission process checklists on the Process Page to learn more about each step along the way.

Currently, applications are being received on a rolling basis, as our application deadline of February 1st has passed.  Rolling admission means that once you complete an application, you will receive a decision within two weeks.  Please call our office to see if space remains in the grade you are interested


Commonly asked questions:

The deadline was February 1st. Am I too late?

The short answer to this is no. We enroll students throughout the spring and summer every year after our first round of decisions is sent in March. We are offering Zoom conversation to fill any openings we have for the 2021-22 school year through a rolling admission process.

How will I navigate the process during COVID?

We’re here to help and part of that is getting to know you and your family. We are scheduling conversations via Zoom with interested families who have applied. You may also be interested to know that throughout these times, our students have remained safely in school. Though things look a little differently, keeping our students engaged safely in classrooms has been one of our top priorities. Watch a video linked here to see how we’ve done it!

 Is it too late to apply for financial aid?

Though we have limited funding available at this time, we encourage families to apply if they believe they need aid to help defer the cost of attending. If you would like to apply, please visit  for more information.

    Financial Aid

    With almost $7 million awarded annually in need-based financial aid, roughly one quarter of Moses Brown students receive some kind of financial support from the school.  This support is rooted in our Quaker values and our belief that a community works best when it includes a diversity of talents and attributes, including socio-economic, gender, cultural, and racial diversity.

    No candidate should be deterred from applying based on finances. The financial aid program is designed to establish the strongest student body for the academic program we offer, and to enhance the educational experience of all our students.

    A student’s financial need is defined as the difference between Moses Brown’s tuition and an estimate of what the student’s family can reasonably contribute for education. Regardless of the student’s talent and attributes, a candidate cannot receive a scholarship unless they qualify based on family income.  To determine the most equitable estimate of family contribution, Moses Brown–like many peer schools–uses the services of the School and Student Service (SSS), which computes an estimated family contribution using a family’s gross income, assets and liabilities, as well as taxes, educational expenses of other children, unusual debts, and medical expenses. The results of this computation is then used by Moses Brown School’s Financial Aid Committee as a guide for determining the amount of the award.
