We're here to help!

The application process involves many steps, and we’re here to help. The best way to get in contact with us is to contact us by email at or by phone at 818.949.5530. 

Step 1: Inquiry Form

Complete Our Inquiry Form online so that we have your contact information

We will use this information to share important communications with you and invite you to special events. If you already have a Prep account in onCampus, completing this inquiry form will allow our office to connect your child to your existing record. 

Step 2: Application

complete prep's online admissions application

Our user-friendly admissions application portal offers instructions and tips for completing the online application. To access the portal, log in here with your account information (received after completing the inquiry form) or complete an inquiry form to get started. The $100 application fee can be waived by contacting the Admissions Office

Step 3: Interview & Campus Visit

schedule your family's interview & campus visit

While Flintridge Prep’s application deadline is January 9, 2023, we encourage you to complete your application as soon as possible. After you submit your application, you’ll be able to schedule your interview and campus visit in the admissions portal.

Campus interviews and visits begin in October and include a campus tour, conversation with Prep faculty and administrators, and time for the applicant to complete a short writing sample. Families will receive more information once they have submitted the application.

Step 4: Recommendations & Transcripts

Request electronic copies of your RECOMMENDATION FORMS and TRANSCRIPTS.

You can do this through Prep’s Online Admissions Application Portal.

Step 5: Character Skills Snapshot

take the character skills snapshot

The Character Skills Snapshot is an innovative online tool that measures student preferences towards seven essential character skills. The seven skills are intellectual engagement, open-mindedness, initiative, resilience, self-control, social awareness, and teamwork. It takes approximately 25 minutes to complete and applicants take the assessment at home, school, or other comfortable environment of their choice. Results complement the other information in an applicant’s file.
You can register for the snapshot through Prep’s Online Admissions Application Portal once you submit the application. The assessment fee is $60, which can be waived by contacting the Prep Admissions Office.

Step 6: Financial Assistance

apply for financial assistance

Flintridge Prep awards financial assistance based on a family’s calculated financial need in amounts ranging from 10% to 100% of tuition and school costs. There are no merit or talent-based awards. If the cost of a Prep education feels out of reach based on your family’s financial circumstances, we believe applying for financial assistance is worth exploring.  Access the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) application via their website.


Flintridge Prep is not reviewing standardized test results (e.g., ISEE or SSAT) as part of its 2023-2024 admissions process.
