To succeed at Stevenson, a prospective student should have intellectual potential appropriate for high school graduation and college work as well as the ability to function in small, individualized classes.
The admission procedure is uncomplicated. Interested parents call for an appointment to tour the school, learn more about us, and discuss the suitability of our program for their son or daughter. Parents then authorize the release of previous school records and psychological data. We prefer a recent psycho-educational evaluation including an assessment of intellectual ability, academic skills, and emotional functioning.
Considering all the information available to us, we decide if we can help the prospective student. After this initial acceptance, we invite the eligible student to visit the school. This protects the student from the damage of possible rejection. We fully engage the prospective student in the admissions process. We believe that the final decision resides with the parents after consultation with the student.
Students are considered for admission at any time during the school year.
If admission to Stevenson is found to be inappropriate, careful referral is made to suitable schools.
The Robert Louis Stevenson School actively promotes a rich multicultural student population. Stevenson admits students of any race, color, and creed, national and ethnic origin.

Stevenson does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin in administration of its admission policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
