How much time do private schools give families to accept enrollment offers?

Last updated:

Timelines vary, but private schools commonly provide families with a month to make their admissions decisions. Keep in mind that the available time will be less for rolling admissions and waitlisted applicants offered enrollment closer to the start of the school year. 

To help families make their enrollment decisions, private schools typically offer revisit days for accepted students between the notification date and the enrollment date.
