After the application has been submitted, you will receive further information about the following steps.
Step 3 - Admission Testing
All Upper School applicants are required to take a grade-appropriate admission test. Testing is scheduled by appointment only. Please call (336) 288-8590 to schedule an appointment. Testing begins promptly at 8:30 a.m.
Step 5 - Report Cards
Report Cards: Parents will need to request a copy of the applicant's current grades and a copy of grades from the two previous years (if applicable). After December 1, you will complete and sign a Transcipt Release form and deliver it to your child's current school.
Step 6 - School Visits
School Visit: Each applicant is required to visit our school for a full day. This visit will allow the applicant to experience a typical day of school here at GDS. Students will visit their current grade. A short writing, math, and reading assessment will be completed on the visit day. Applicants will also have the opportunity to meet with one of our Middle School Administrators. Once the application has been submitted, we will contact you to schedule the visit.
Step 8 - Interview
Each Upper School applicant (rising grades 9-12) will interview with a member of the Admission Office during the visit or the interview may be scheduled on a testing date (see list of dates above).
