Admissions Process

Dexter Southfield has entry points for each division: Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten for the Lower School; Classes 6 and 7 for the Middle School; and Class 9 for the Upper School. Space is available based on attrition in other grades. Dexter Southfield will accept applications to any grade; however, student visits may be limited if it is a non-entry year and there is no predicted attrition. Pre-Kindergarten is designed for children who are 4 years old by September 1 of the year they enter PK. Kindergarten is designed for children who are 5 by September 1. 

Below is the link to the Admissions process for each division. The Admissions Office is here to support and guide you through this entire admissions process. We encourage you to call us at 617-454-2721 or email with questions.‚Äč
