Enrollment Step by Step

Thank you for your interest in Clearview Sudbury School. What follows is a step by step summary of our enrollment process. Students may enroll and begin attending at any point during the school year.

STEP 1: Educate yourself
Sudbury schools are surprisingly different from most other public and private schools. Before starting the enrollment process:

If you need reduced tuition because of your financial circumstances, you may want to look into applying to FACTS at this point to find out what tuition you qualify for.

STEP 2: Schedule an admissions interview

Call or email the office to schedule an interview. Both parents or guardians and the potential student are required to attend the enrollment interview.

The admissions interview is not a test or a means of selecting certain kinds of students. It is a frank discussion during which all parties can make sure that Clearview Sudbury School is a good fit for the enrollee and his or her family. It is also an orientation for the student and a chance for us to collect information necessary for enrolling. Interviews generally last about an hour.


Please fill out and bring an Interview Request Form and a check for the interview fee of $50.

STEP 3: Visiting week

Schedule a day to begin a visiting week.

The visiting week is a period of five days where the prospective enrollee attends Clearview and has all the rights (other than the right to vote) and responsibilities of an enrolled student. The minimum amount of attendance for this period is the same as for our other students: 20 hours.

A conference also takes place at the end of the visiting week, to review the week and determine whether the student, parents, and school community are all comfortable with enrollment. A second visiting week may be scheduled if appropriate.


On or before the start of the visiting week, please fill out and bring the Visiting Week Contract and a check for $150 per child.

STEP 4: Enrollment
Once the end-of-week interview has taken place and all parties agree that enrollment is a good idea, enrollment forms are filled out. A deposit of of 50% of one month’s tuition ($350) is required to hold a place. This deposit is non-refundable.

We look forward to meeting your family! Please feel free to call with any questions.
