Applying to Kirby

Thank your for your interest in Kirby School! 

Our Admissions Office will gladly work with you to make the application process accessible during this era of school closures. We understand that until the global health crisis passes, obtaining recommendations and transcripts may be onerous if not impossible. Please reach out to us if you have questions or concerns. We are in this together! 

Email or call (831) 423-0658 x 202 to speak with Emily Lamoureux, Admissions Director.  

We consider applications year-round through a rolling admissions cycle.

Like most independent schools, Kirby School uses an online portal to process applications. This simplifies applying and reduces paper waste. Our Application Checklist provides a step-by-step overview of the process.
