We are delighted that you are interested in Nantucket Lighthouse School for your child's education. The steps below will guide you through our application process.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Submit your child's application here.
If we don't have an opening for your child at the time the completed application is submitted, your child will be added to the waitlist for the requested school year. Once an opening for your child becomes available our Admissions Director will reach out to you through the admissions portal, and the admissions process resumes.
Please note that you don't have to pay an application fee if your child is added to the waitlist.
Candidates entering K-5th Grade are invited to join us for an observation day.
Once you have submitted an application, you will be invited to an interview with the Head of School. The interview is typically 30 minutes in length and gives you a chance to ask questions. In addition to the observation day, this will also give our Head of School an opportunity to determine the best placement for your child.
An admissions decision will be made once all steps of the admissions process have been completed.
