Admissions
Learning Beyond our Classrooms

Welcome to Greenwood School. While our campus may be on pause right now, Greenwood is very much open! Our admissions team is hard at work and eager to help families learn all about The Greenwood School.

The first few steps in our process remain the same: initial phone calls and testing review. Our student interviews will be conducted via video calls with an Admission Director and our Head of School. Our faculty is excited to meet with families remotely via video calls to describe the amazing things they are doing in classes with their students. Greenwood’s Parent Ambassadors are ready to chat with prospective parents about their experience having their sons at Greenwood. Give us a call – we can’t wait to meet you!

Our admissions process includes:
  • Initial Phone Call with Parents and Admissions Director
  • Educational Testing Review
  • 24-Hour Testing Turnaround
  • Second phone call with Parents and Admissions Director (Reference Review, Application)
  • Student Interview (Admissions Director, Head of School)
  • Family Virtual Tour with Teachers
  • Parent Referrals
  • School Admissions Decision

Meet our Head of School, Anne Swayze

We are busy learning, inventing, creating and staying engaged every day while away from our small village of Putney, VT.

Our admission team is available to help you learn all about Greenwood. We are hosting virtual prospective parent meetings with faculty, staff, and current parents. We can even invite your child to any one of our virtual creative classes - art, music, or woodshop! We want to show you all the wonderful educational, creative and residential moments that differentiate us from other schools. We believe in our Greenwood education and want to invite you to be part of our school.

Take a Virtual Driving Tour

We encourage you to click around our virtual school on the website, where you will learn the Greenwood way. You can dip into our progressive hands-on learning environment, visit the programs that distinguish us, and meet the community that defines us. We’ll also introduce you to our online learning at every grade level. We have all kinds of inspiring ideas to keep your student happily productive during this challenging time.

Take a Guided Tour

Each year, all of us at Greenwood are continually amazed at the courage and resilience our students demonstrate as they leave their homes and venture out into the unfamiliar world of boarding school. Year after year, with the support and guidance from their parents and everyone at school, Greenwood students increase their skills, discover talents they never knew they had, and emerge from the experience as independent, resourceful, confident young people.
